Another late report :rolleyes:

Built in 1899, history can be found HERE (http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-493738-former-ice-factory-and-cold-store-123-13)
This grade II listed victorian building is now stripped ready to be assimilated into the 150M Beorma Quarter complex as bespoke offices due for completion in 2014 if it ever manges to be completed.

Visited with Adders and Sammydoublewhammy
