Brinks Mat Bullion
The place where the thieves stashed the stolen gold bullion.
Location: 117 Wilton Way
Description: This newly developed building sits atop a former warehouse where some of the gold bullion from the audacious 1983 Brinks Mat robbery was stashed. Over 3 tonnes was stolen and most of it has never been recovered.
The building later became Hackney Empire's sister theatre the Bullion Room and in 2010 was sold to developers.
