The Horsingdon Transmissions No.104: Deep Secrets

This warehouse rests on the edge of the Grand Union Canal (which traces its path through Northwich and Horsingdon) and once belonged to James Boreham. Along with a number of other similar canalside properties which Boreham also owned, this warehouse was subject to a compulsory purchase order in the late 1950s, and thence investigated by Ministry officials - after which the windows and doorways of all said properties were promptly bricked-up.

One can only speculate as to the nature of the secrets revealed by the Ministry's enquiries which caused them to take such action; in any case, whatever Boreham dredged up from the aqueous depth remain to this day sealed and entombed within these now faceless and anonymous structures.
