Guests tour flats at docks at new residential warehouse
Around 50 guests took a tour of new flats at Gloucester docks during the official opening of a residential warehouse.
The Lock Warehouse, consisting of one and two-bedroom apartments as well as two and three-bedroom penthouse apartments, was the former home of Gloucester Antiques Centre.
The Grade II ex-Victorian grain warehouse has been converted into 26 apartments by Lydney-based Melt Homes.
Speaking at the event, managing director Evan Maindonald said: "This evening is very important for us because it is our first public showing. We are very pleased to bring this historic building back to life again."

Among the visitors was chief executive of Marketing Gloucester Ltd, Chris Oldershaw.
He said: "This is a massive vote of confidence for the docks and for the future."
Gloucester MP Richard Graham cut the ribbon to declare the warehouse open to the public.
"What we want is lots more happy families and individuals here and elsewhere in the city," he said.
There have so far been six reservations and four contracts exchanged on the apartments.
Melt Homes bought the building in 2006 and the antique centre moved across the docks to beside the Gloucester Quays designer outlet centre in 2009.
