SU1584 : Garrard Factory, Newcastle Street & Plymouth Street

taken 39 years ago, near to Swindon, Great Britain

Garrard Factory, Newcastle Street & Plymouth Street
Garrard Factory, Newcastle Street & Plymouth Street
As well as having its main frontages to Newcastle Street & Fleming Way, the factory also partly fronted the extension of Plymouth Street. The factory gates were also here, and can be seen in the distance ahead. When the factory was in operation, it usually worked night and day, and the thump of the presses could be heard in nearby houses. The factory suffered a major fire in about 1958, Swindon's worst to date, but the factory was rebuilt, and continued operation for another twenty plus years.

Some multi-storey buildings can be seen in the distance. They were built as offices for various organisations on land between Princes Street & Spring Gardens. Originally Princes Street had two-storey terraced houses on both sides.
