    The Lydbrook Cable Works was built in 1912 by Harold J Smith.
    In the first world war the works had lots of contracts and employed 650 people. At the end of the war business slowed down and the official receiver was brought in around 1920.
    Edison Swan Electric Company bought the business in 1925.
    The Cable Works closed in 1966 and the Factory was bought by Reed Paper Group, And then was taken over by Swedish Company SCA.
    The Sca Factory finally closed around 2003.
