A £35m project to increase the size of Swindon's Designer Outlet centre is under way, a year after the expansion was given planning approval.
The work will add 50,000 sq ft (4,645 sq m) to make room for up to 30 new shops, creating an estimated 350 jobs.
It will be carried out on the Long Shop building which was built in 1874 as part of the Grade II-listed Great Western Railway Works.
According to site owner McArthurGlen, the work will be completed next autumn.
