Old Mill Wall New Lane

Wall where old mill used to be between 64 and 42 New Lane, Oswaldtwistle Gobbinland, Accrington, Lancashire, BB5 3QW. This used to be the Eagle Chemical Works in the early 1900s making phenol used in carbolic acid. Disinfectant and unseen germs were newly discovered so there was a big demand for sterilization and hygiene products. Did these works close about 1970?
