This was a clothing factory called Strads during the 1960s and 70s (and maybe earlier - I couldn't say, and the 'net is relatively silent on the matter...).

This factory was built for Osband Bros clothes, my mother worked there when it was Osbands.

This was the Stadium factory during the 1960s and 70s (and maybe earlier - I couldn't say, and the 'net is relatively silent on the matter...), manufacturing, amongst other things, crash helmets.
