The large brick building that you can see over the roofs of the cars is St. Mildred's Tannery. It closed and moved to an industrial estate. The site is being re-developed into a residential area. Presumably helping the local politicians meet the Government's targets for the redevelopment of brown-field sites.
Turn left to see the 11th Century St.Mildred's Church and right into Stour Street for the city centre.
