Had my eye on this a while and was tad dissapointed when I finally got to do it. I read it's to be developed for a new DIY centre. The trees around the perimeter have been cut back since my last recce and theres a core drilling machinery on there so I'm guessing it's a step closer to being built.

Sadly no sign of Mr Fox head since my last visit.

Barpro was set up by director Chris Spears' grandfather Ernest Spears and father Alfred Spears, and has been based in Bromsgrove since the 1940s, and on the Sherwood Road site since the early 1960s.

The company played its part in the war effort, making parts for the Spitfire aircraft. At its peak Barpro, which manufactured components predominantly for the automotive industry, employed 150 people.

Manufacturing ceased in 2003, and Barpo is currently in the process of winding down. Only the derelict factory remains on the main site.
