A photographic survey of a group of buildings prior to their restoration and conversion. These buildings consist of a series of stables with adjoining areas that may have housed a small scale industry or were simply used for storage. Despite the name there is no obvious evidence that they were used for the processing of hemp. Part of the basement of the building was converted into an air-raid shelter.
