Unit 11 is situated in the central courtyard, built in the mid-19 century, and still retains much of their original features and charm. The courtyard is used as the main entrance to the Bowhouse site allowing customers to move freely through the space past the units up towards the café and ‘Market Street’. Partly glazed this unit opens onto the courtyard with wide access doors for customers and bulk deliveries. The back walls of the unit are punctuated with small porthole windows, giving a glimpse of the fields beyond.
