Former EMI CD factory, Penny Lane, Swindon
Former EMI CD factory, Penny Lane, Swindon
EMI had several operations in Swindon at one time. This plant was built by them in the 1990s to replace a smaller factory in Greenbridge. Then they found that it was cheaper to manufacture CDs in Holland so they closed the factory about six years ago. It has recently been sold to a car retailer. The name 'Penny Lane' is derived from a song by a now defunct pop group.
