Canning Factory

This cannery opened around 1904 close to a new rail line. Operations ceased around 1955; the factory became derelict over the next 60 years. A remarkable renovation has blended the original with the modern to create a showroom for Vincent Sheppard's line of indoor and outdoor furniture. A returning Doors Open favourite, this distinctive building was created by visionary owners.
