    Interesting project.

    To save duplication it might help if you let us know which ones you already have details of.

    From the web after a very quick search I came across Llandudno...

    Hi Roger.
    Unless I am mistaken, you are taking about the ex Government cold stores.
    I worked for what was TDG Novacold Group. from memory there was something like 31 stores nationally.
    Ones I can remember that have to my knowledge been raised to the ground (*) are
    Exeter* (Pinhoe) Reading* (London Road) Cardiff* (By The Station) Avonmouth still operating!
    I know there are others around the country but as to which are old Govy \depots Usually next to a railway. I am not sure that some like like Eastleigh (Southampton) Estover (Plymouth) were that old.
    I know a manager that collected site memorabilia but I have not seen him to speak to for a few years now.
    Good luck Grizzly
