The Warehouse, a large emporium selling items dating from the 17th century to the 1930s, has opened at Yellow Arch Studios in Neepsend inside a cavernous 2,500 sq ft store.

The studios’ director Andy Cook has had a lifelong passion for antiques, and believes the business could be a way forward for Yellow Arch in a post-coronavirus world.

Arctic Monkeys used the studios for their first proper practice sessions. They used rehearsal room three to hone the songs that would comprise their debut album, released in 2006.

See below for a glimpse of how The Warehouse looks inside, and read a full feature here. The centre is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays.
