History -
"Ferranti or Ferranti International plc was a UK electrical engineering and equipment firm that operated for over a century from 1885 until it went bankrupt in 1993 (the Belgian subsidiary lives on as Ferranti Computer Systems and is now part of the Nijkerk Holding). Known primarily for defence electronics, the company was once a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

The firm was known for work in the area of power grid systems and defence electronics. In addition, in 1951 Ferranti began selling the first commercially available computer, the Ferranti Mark 1."

Explored with Dweeb whilst out road trippin' . Aside from having to dodge secca on our approach we were pretty much left to our own devices once inside. Sadly this is pre wide angle lens so the pictures aren't as decent as I would have liked.

I can't see anything to suggest that it isn't and certainly didn't come across anything when I was googling the history yesterday so might be worth a look still?
