Cambridge 2000: Purbeck Road: Plurabelle Books
|Description: Purbeck Road: Plurabelle Books|
|Date built: c1940|
There are very few industrial areas in Cambridge, and what there
is, is pretty small scale. This cheap and not so cheerful
building was located in an area at the end of Purbeck Road next
to the railway line. The entire site was very low rise and even
included a large amount of open space, and so with pressure
on land use, it was always likely that the entire site would be
re-developed at a much higher density. At the date of the photo,
the building was occupied by a used book warehouse.
The site was bought by
in 2011 and re-development of the site started in 2014, at which
time this building was demolished.
