Art Deco

This building was originally built in early to mid twentieth century possibly as a shop and workshop. In the 1950's part of the site was used as a fitter's workshop. More recently in 1984 planning permission was granted to use part of the site as a snooker hall and in 1993 the snooker hall was extended. In 1994 the snooker hall was again extended onto the first floor. The snooker hall closed in 1997, the rear of the building was subsequently used as a night-club, however due to the unacceptable nuisance this use caused to local residents it is understood that its licence was revoked. The building has remained unoccupied since the club closed. It has recently been converted into eight flats.
