2000 to 2001

by Julia Ford

The former Golden Wonder Crisp Factory based in Widnes, was purchased by the Group. The entire site was refurbished to create modern industrial units and yards and the BBC filmed the drama series ’Merseybeat’ at this site. Towngate also adapted to the increased competition and pressure in the commercial lettings market by launching their first Towngate website at this time.
