Art Deco structure in Britain. Now sensitively preserved as a Tesco's
supermarket, and an office building for Gallaghers. its principle

divided into 15 bays by massive Egyptian pillars with ornate designs
on the tops and bottoms. Its outstanding central doorway has over
the door is a huge sunray like design with touches of red, blue,
green and golden arrow quills; and matching gates of ornate metalwork.
The towers at either end have curved corner windows and sunbursts
and arrow quill features. To the left of the factory is what was
the canteen, its style reminiscent of a streamlined Odeon cinema.
