Old tobacco factory building in Millbrook
Old tobacco factory building in Millbrook
The imagine was taken from the top level of the nearby multi-storey car park. On the right the original factory building opened in 1926 can be seen with part of the newer factory on the left, opened in 1993. The factories were closed in 2006 when cigarette production was transferred abroad. Both buildings are now scheduled for demolition in the near future. During the 2nd World War the old factory was used for the production of the Spitfire fuel tank.
