    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. The building is currently for sale for 7 million.

    Big thanks to Yorrick for the heads up and extensive research on access. :thumb
