Police have today released photographs of a cannabis factory found at Shangri-La Farm on the edge of Stevenage, after an Arlesey man admitted class A and B drug offences.
The photographs show cannabis being grown in Unit 10 of Shangri-La Farm – a former turkey farm off Stevenage Road in Todds Green that is now an industrial site, right next to a bridge over the A1(M).
Leigh Windsor, 39, of Ramerick Gardens in Arlesey, admitted his involvement when he appeared before Stevenage magistrates on Wednesday, and also pleaded guilty to possession of class A and B drugs with intent to supply.
The Shangri-La operation was discovered by police on December 23 – and the same day officers found 79.3g of cocaine and 3.75kg of cannabis in Windsor’s house.
Chairman of the bench Ingrid Saggers bailed Windsor to appear for sentence at Cambridge Crown Court on April 6.

In the meantime his bail conditions mean he must not attend the industrial unit in question, and must live and sleep each night at his home address.
