Notes / History Liberty purchased the Merton printworks in 1904; shortly after this these old weather-boarded buildings, including Bennett's mill, were demolished. The eastern range of brick buildings were adapted to suit Liberty's needs.
Liberty & Co ceased production at Merton in 1972, although textile production continued through Vita-Tex Ltd, Riseline Ltd and Merton Fabrics Ltd. The premises were finally closed in 1982.
