Lots of lovely engineeringy type things included there :)
It appears to be clearing the contents of the business 'Boldscan' : 'Banners and Displays, Covers and Logistics Materials, and Marquees'.

A little bit of history of the area - Tonedale appears to have had an industry of mills and fabrics. The mill buildings are listed :

and one of the mills in the area used to be famous(?) for manufacturing puttees - lots of them !!
