Myself, thebluefox, termin8tor and friend took a look around this place after failing to gain access to some promising looking factories. Looked pretty small from the outside, but once inside turned out to be a large maze of offices, workshops, storerooms and basements. The variety of different businesses that appeared to have operated there in the same cluster of buildings was quite unusual, a pub, knitware factories, engineering works, craft workshops and hockey equipment warehouse.
