    You know when you see a shopkeep in old films push that huge button to make an enormous brass cash drawer fly out of some lavish till... Chances are it's a national...

    All that remains of this works, stood to one side of McDonnalds, a bowling alley and assorted other crap is the work's handsome art deco office. To call it handsome is an overstatement... but it would have been handsome.

    I'm totally guessing at this, but here is my version of why it is still there...

    The works closed, the council decide to build the usual crap assortment of supermarkets, frankie and bennies and whatever... as the site is important, and the offices of merit, they are granted listed status. The demo company rip the works off the back of the building crudley, and brick it up, ruining the whole cool grace of the deco look...

    It now sits there, obv with no takers for it's conversion until it's demo. Someone correct me if I'm worng, but I doubt I'll have any takers.

    Inside a very lavish wooden staircase and hardwood revolving door are all that remain. Oh, and the strong room was sadly locked :(
