Save the North Warehouse

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Mid Suffolk District Council should take action to ensure that the Grade II Listed Buildings known as the the North Warehouse in Bramford are protected against further deterioration.

These buildings formed the original Eastern Union Chemical Works of Joseph Fison & Co and were used for the production of superphosphate fertiliser from the mid 1860's.  They were built  alongside those of Edward Packard & Co who had  constructed probably the first complete such factory in the country.   The firms eventually amalgamated to form Fisons - a nationally and internationally renowned fertiliser, chemical and horticultural company.

The buildings were listed in 1986. 

The site was vacated in 2003 but planning permission was granted for redevelopment along with restoration of the North Warehouse in 2014.  No progress has been made with this scheme and the buildings continue to deteriorate.
