I contact the local historian, Philip Sherwood. He pointed me to this website:
http://www.theoldvinylfactory.com/

The website seems to be a marketing arm of whatever group is re-developing the old EMI plant site. 
Apparently. no more pressing equipment is there and no more LP pressing takes place there. I wonder 
what happened to the old presses?
