    Iím guessing the pictures of the burnt shell is after an arson attack? I suppose that acetylene bottle went up like a firework!

    I don't know much about the history but I believe the fires were arson attacks after the closure as reported by Kent Online.

    Nothing much left of it now but it looks as though it was a thriving business at one time.
