Alexandra Business Park - Unit 033, Nor Skips

Site of the former Coles Cranes factory and with an industrial heritage going back to the great days of shipbuilding on the Wear, the Alexandra Business Park is scheduled for clearance. The land is required for the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (SSTC) and a new Wear crossing, with a landmark bridge design set to appear in the next couple of years:

We were given access for an afternoon to document the remaining industry on the site, and the many derelict and abandoned buildings. More in the group pool here:
