Well in. Unfortunately trashed by gypsys, graf heads and ravers alike. It was designed for Sun Microsystems by Cruickshank and Seward in the 1970s. Quite a slick technology building in its time. ICL had the site next door and eventually became Fujitsu - originally it was Ferranti and was where the first commercial computers were built. The ICL site was the biggest producer of computers in Europe at one point. A bit of a technology hub in West Gorton...


photos here too
