Factory Gates
Factory Gates
A pavement crossing marks the site of the Lucas CAV factory's New Oak Road entrance. Simms' factory opened on this site in 1926 utilising a victorian mansion and its grounds. A successful business, supplying motor parts, it expanded to fill the whole of the six acre site. In 1968 the company was taken over by Lucas CAV. With the UK motor business losing market share, the factory was gradually run down and finally closed in 1991. At one time it was Finchley's largest employer. I used to meet my father here at the end of his shift. It is now a housing estate
