    Long yet concise.

    Anyway, we've always wondered about this place but never got around to it. James Dyson wants to build his academy here, but he wants to knock this place down to do it, which given the history is an absolute disgrace, moreso for a man of supposed engineering pedigree.

    We didn't get any further than this building, that's not to say it can't be done though ;)
