Old Morlands factory in Somerset begins new era

A former sheepskin factory in Somerset, derelict for more than 30 years, is getting ready to welcome a new era.

The old Morlands site on the edge of Glastonbury has been empty since the recession of the 1980s.

Part of the factory was saved by locals in 2008. They formed a community-owned company, the Red Brick Building Centre, and raised £500,000 to restore it.

It is being redeveloped in to office space for businesses and charities.
