History and description
Magna Park was created by a collaboration between the Church of England and Asda in 1988; constructed on the site of a former airfield (RAF Bitteswell) it is considered a pioneer of large distribution centres in the UK. It is located in an area of land bounded by the M1, M6 and M69 motorways; known as the 'Golden Triangle' for its logistically favourable location.
In 2013 police raided one of the smaller units to find a fully operational crystal meth lab and almost a million pounds in unused notes.
