DVD - Warehouse at Work


One of the regeneration stories of recent years is the refurbishment and re-use of old buildings. Broad Street Warehouse, at the top of Wolverhampton Locks, was one such building whose exterior would remain largely unaltered but whose interior would be gutted to make way for a town centre night club.

In loving detail, and before it was too late, a small group of experts reconstructed the way that boats entered the building's indoor wharf and were unloaded, how the warehousemen would have used the lifting machinery, and the sights and sounds of a building that had remained silent for nearly 40 years.
