     History
    Originally owned by Ferranti-Packard and used to make transformers. Two other buildings were later added and the whole complex was eventually converted into a major film studio which was used to help make Chicago, Johnny Johnny Mnemonic and K19: The Widowmaker. Only one building now remains active; the large warehouse which is currently being used by Maple Leaf to store sweet-smelling firelogs.
