Wouldn't like to guess he's been there for, but earned himself a decent retiral bonus, with the plans submitted to build 43 houses over his current site and the waste ground out the back.

Heaven knows how the roads and sewer system of the village will cope however!

Is that the place in Crossgates? If so I remember my dad buying a sheet of hardboard for my train set from there well over forty years ago.

yeah crossgates. That junction could be very horrible now. Guess with the number of "named" merchants in the area who will be able to be more competitive with batch pricing will be a driver in the closure.

PP I think a good few million £££ to sell the land might have been a bigger factor ;-)
