As you look ahead, you will see the home of Ferodo Brake Linings, now the Federal Mogul Company. Today the factory looks very different, although some of the buildings still remain, such as the familiar pointed and sloping roofs.
Ferodo were the first company to create and develop friction surfaces for braking systems in motor vehicles. The company originated in 1897 with Herbert Frood, who created woven cotton breaks for horse drawn carts from his garden shed at Combs! The enterprise grew and in 1902 moved to the current location at Chapel-en-le-Frith.
