it takes on buildings of historical significance that have no future in the
ordinary market place.

buildings anywhere in the country, as long as they have an industrial
connection. That can cover anything from warehouses and wharves to rural
buildings such as granaries - since agriculture is the industry of the
IBPT is a registered charity, no 270956.
