I'm surprised this place is still there as news reports of it's closure date back to February 2009. Worth a butchers.
Wonder if it has a shadow factory.:D

It was still there a few weeks ago. I have been keeping my eye on it for a few years but its quite tight normally. Hopefully it will change now.

This needs checking up on - It was still there and acessable but alarmed in august. The siren was quite loud!
