The factory building in the distance used to be a manufacturing facility for David Brown Tractors. On the opposite side of the canal was one of if not the largest manufacturing facilities for BICC (British Insulated Calendar Cables). The BICC factory used to have a huge steam boiler next to the canal which was always venting off steam. Used to scare the pants off me as a young kid.
