The impressive Hill Paul building is now luxury apartments. It was built in 1898 for Williamson Tratt & Co, a clothing business, taken over in 1902 by Hill Paul & Co. The business was successful for many years, but production finally stopped in 1989. It overlooks the canal which is gradually being restored to use as a navigable waterway.
Looking back along the canal towards Wallbridge. In the foreground, the canal is dammed off whilst work takes place at the lock.
