Extensive damp internally from eroded brickwork, open joints, causing widespread mould on internal walls, and deflection in one of the main floor beams with ends housed in the brickwork decaying. Repairs to the machinery are also need to allow it to resume operation. The Trust are considering their options; the condition and costs, and who to apply for financial assistance.
