Warehouse Wednesday: Leamington's hidden warehouse
Hidden down an alleyway in Leamington is a warehouse.
Now a gym, it is an interesting brick building right in the middle of several others. The "road" in front is little more than 10 feet wide.
Logically, the warehouse must pre-date the buildings in front of it. There should have once been more space for goods to come and go. Logically, but the buildings in front seem just as old and certainly date to the Victorian era judging by old photos of the street.
So why is it here?
According to the gym website, it is a listed building although I can't find any details - the nearest listing is for the shops in Bath Street next door.
You can see the building on Google Streetview although the marker is in the wrong place, the mill is the large building at the end of the alleyway/street.
