This unique building clearly echoes the history of its location. The building consists of a slate roof, distinctive masonry walls with Siberian larch panelling and recycled rocks.

 

The building is mainly characterised by its wood-clad ‘Boat Hall’. This distinctive part of the building was built in the shape of the sails of the ‘Herring Drifters’, who hibernated around Hays Dock during the previous century.
