This was the frontage to the office blocks and the entrance by the canteen area. I would sit out in the sunshine on my break the dark bricks making it very warm. To the point of falling a sleep on some breaks.This was in its day the largest weeving shed in europe, with most departments under one roof. To walk on the out side of the factory would take you nearly an hour to go all the way around.
