Possibly, but before that perhaps, it was a carpet warehouse that had a large fire which destroyed most of the building around 1991/92

this place was in the News a year or two ago as someone had nicked one of the gates at the entrance, which were quite valuable.

You will notice that the building was split into 2 parts, and the carpet warehouse section that went on fire was in the end nearest to town, I think Stanford containers had the section neares to Cavendish Street. The fire was arround 91/92. I drove past when it was actualy on fire {yes I thought to myself an insurance job?} I left the area in 93 and it was before then

I noticed there's a massive hole in the wall, like something just punched a big hole through it, superman style.

The land and building belong to a John Kearn who owns Apex sliding door gear on Corpy Rd. And yes, his gate was stolen!
