    There really isn't much to find online about this place which, given it's size is a bit of an enigma. L&H Polymers/Reacro Rubber was a Canadian company who owned a large factory on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Northampton. From what I can find the company went into liquidation and was dissolved in 1997 and now does not exist. They produced the flooring for the Tokyo subway system, as well as floors for London buses, solid military tyres and millions and millions of rubber O-rings. The entire place was flattened in 2012.

     Future Plans
    Will have houses or something similar built on it I'm sure, if that hasn't happened already.
