Great hype but isn't there an ice wall in Manchester here: http://www.vertical-chill.com/vertical-chill-manchester.htm

Pretty sure there used to be one in Castleford Xscape as well but it may have shut down.
In reply to tom_holdsworth:

Very true Tom, the Castleford Xscape wall closed some years ago and whilst the Manchester wall is still operational, our Ice Wall is a good 115 miles further North :)

Speaking of which our cold room is going down to temperature this week. Winter is coming...

Updates to follow as work progresses.
