Belmont Row Works - Belmont Row - Workpeople & Goods Entrance

New shots of the derelict Belmont Row Works.

 

It was the Belmont Row Works a factory on Belmont Row. It was destroyed by fire and wind in early 2007.

 

It was a factory to build bicycles for the Victorians.

 

It might possibly get restored.

 

It was the Headquarters for the Eccles Rubber and Cycle Company, and it housed rubber manufactory. By 1918 it was occupied by the Co-Operative Society, which used the premises to make underwear. In 1931 the factory was making pianos, and by 1941 bedsteads.

 

In the future, it might be developed as part of the Eastside Locks scheme.

 

Found the following news article at the Birmingham Maill website Restoration agreed to historic Birmingham bicycle factory

 

This is the Eastside Locks area.

 

This was the Workpeople & Goods Entrance.
