In keeping with post-war redevelopment plans that zoned this district for industry a three-storey workshops block was erected on this site_ _in the early 1970s and first used for the light engineering of metal furnishings. This was converted in the late 1990s to be thirty flats above showrooms for clothing wholesalers, and given new elevations, the upper storeys faced in plain brick. Two storeys for thirty more flats were added in 2002, when Proctor Matthews were the architects for Galliard Homes.1
