Ford's Foundry 15 January 2012 (6)
The view west from the Old Warwick Road to the 1990s extension which, outwardly, appears unchanged but is surely being gutted. A heavy truck marked Squibb (the demolition contractor) waits with a load of scrap metal. The extensive concrete hardstanding was once a busy lorry park. By 28 January it had almost all been dug up and taken away. On the left is the carefully retained phone box that appears in several photographs and, beyond it, the portacabin village of offices, toilets and stores.
