Dursley News - September 2014

The factory area once occupied by Lister's of Dursley is now a sorry looking sight with abandoned and overgrown buildings left to decay. They will remain for the time being but it may not be too long before they all get swept away and the last evidence of this once proud company's presence in Dursley will have disappeared. Meanwhile at the Cam end of the site, rapid progress continues on the new houses which are springing up at Littlecombe.
