    History - "The Leicester Rubber Company was formed in 1906 by John Cecil Burton and his brother Cecil Hubert. The company’s success led to a further name change in 1934 when the Leicester Rubber Company became the John Bull Rubber Company Ltd. For the following two decades, the John Bull Rubber Company continued to manufacture tyres for cars, motorcycles, bicycles & prams. It was in 1955 that John Bull became merged with another company, Metalastik, and thus the John Bull company name became relegated to automotive history. Possibly closed around 2006"

    Visited a few times with various different people. I really liked this place and I own a number of John Bull repair tins which means I automatically like it more.
    I'm currently transferring alll my pictures and having an organise so I apologise for re-hashing old places etc as I know this has been done to death.
