The sign at the top says Astley Brook & Co. Ltd. Huddersfield. Turns out to be a patented fireproof garage marketed in 1935 as the latest thing to keep your car safe. Presumably it's been doing its job here on the quayside ever since.
From the sales literature:
"The A.B.C. Garage may be regarded as permanent a building as your house; it requires no after attention, the steel framework remains rigid and upright, the panelling is held firm and secure, and the building will withstand every gale."
It was also delivered free of charge to your house, see LinkExternal link

Now of course asbestos specialists would be required to remove it.
