Following the closure of the Former Westmills Food factory in 2004, which included agro-industrial buildings, the site has been vacant. The industrial buildings were demolished in 2011 and the site was cleared. The land immediately to the rear of the site is designated as a County Wildlife Site known as ‘Angel Drove Drains’.
The surrounding area contains a broad range of land uses and buildings, which include an industrial and retail estate to the south side of Angel Drove. To the north east are residential properties on Potters Lane / Dovehouse Close. Playing fields and Ely City golf course are to the north and west.
