Venture Quays Building East Cowes Isle of Wight
Once the Westland Aircraft factory that made hovercrafts in the 60s. In later years it was the Vestas factory, making wind turbine blades, as seen in the photograph. However, production has now been moved elsewhere. Industrial action and sit-ins have been in the news, as Vestas is a major employer on the island.
