Usk Valley Business Park
Pontypool, Torfaen, NP4 0YH, Wales

Originally built for the pharmaceutical company Parke-Davis/Warner Lambert, the site now provides a range of clean manufacturing, laboratory facilities, storage and administrative space. The site also boasts the longest corridor in the United Kingdom!

15 Dec 2008: Judging by what's seen on screen in Enemy of the Bane, Unit D on the site has been demolished.
