was owned since the 70’s by W H Shaw and sons, pallet makers, there until approx 2006 when the company went into administration. It was reputedly one of the largest pallet works in Europe.



The stunning building at the entrance known locally as ‘The Cathedral’ the main building housing the clock tower. The building with the clock tower is a Grade II listed building



Part of the site was taken over in 2010 by a plastic extrusion company but only survived for a small number of years before going bust.



The site was earmarked for the location of a new high school and planning permission passed. This school should have been in service by 2018! But due to continued and ongoing local resistance nothing has happened



The main offices at the time of the visit alas were not unfortunately accessible.
