Mick, an ex-Manns employee, says: “The photograph was taken in the 1980s. The depot in Cowbit Road was a distribution centre and stores.

“Many years ago the site was owned by Soames Brewery where beer was brewed until the depot was taken over by Watney Manns.

“The depot in Cowbit Road continued to operate until the mid-80s when it was moved to Cradge bank until it closed due to reorganisation in February 1992.”
