Demolition of former Belliss and Morcom works, Icknield Square
Belliss and Morcom were once famous for the manufacture of steam generating engines which were exported worldwide.
They operated from three sites all close to one another in this part of Birmingham - their original Ledsam Street works the rear of which can be seen in SP0586 : Rear of Belliss and Morcom Ledsam St works; a site at Icknield Square (the main building in the centre of this photo and also seen in SP0587 : Canal and bridge over entrance to minor canal and SP0587 : Factory in reflective mood); and on the other side of the Icknield Port Loop, a site fronting Rotton Park Street, seen on the right of this photo.
The Rotton Park Street works (also seen in SP0487 : Belliss & Morcom Works, Ladywood), were built c1902, closed in 1992 and were demolished in 2005. The site is still vacant. The Icknield Square works were built in 1899, and this photo shows their demolition in June 2010.
