    Arrow Knitware Factory 33, Leicester - March 2013


    I can't find much info on this one, other than it was built in the 1930's and I remember it being used as a knitware factory until a few years ago. It was then used as a furniture warehouse, until it very suddenly became vacant and demolition started. Sadly most original features have been lost, but its still a nice building externally. It also has its own very mint air raid shelter, which myself and MD managed to first access some years ago... https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main...r#.UUy7SDdWoiU
