    I've had my eye on this place since I first moved to Birmingham. Originally a row of town houses, the building has undergone the usual transformation into a factory with typical period workshops to the rear. From what little paperwork I found inside it seems that Christopher Wray was once Landon & Brothers, who also made lighting, as well as companion sets, automotive pressings, metal spinnings and aeroplane components during the war.

    I really enjoyed finally seeing inside. It had an air of George Barnsley to it, and despite being pretty devoid of stuff we did find boxes of patterns for spinning, as well as some pressed components and other bits and pieces related to lighting manufacture.

    Here is a photo I took a while ago, before the scaffold went up.
