Future Uses

In 1984 there was an unsuccessful application for the site to be used for a superstore and, more imaginatively, a local councillor proposed that it be turned into a museum and local crafts centre. At the time however the site was very much a busy storage depot, employing some 300 men and neither proposal got off the ground. The only reminders of the site’s historic past over the last twenty-five years have been the occasional glimpses of the imposing frontage on such t.v. productions as Vincent, Heartbeat and The Royal.
