messageHeaton Road/Rye Lane/Philip Road - History questionattachment
Posted by hothamwater January 07, 12:24AM

Hi,
Please see attached image - I am trying to identify the building labelled "Works" in this map of Heaton Road/Rye Lane/Philip Road area from the 60s/70s. Previously (in 1950s) it was labelled Furniture factory.
I am interested to know what it was, who ran it and most importantly, what was the address here?
My family ran it as a woodworking factory in 1900 for a few years and I would like to find out more.
If any one has any photos from the 70s/80s even better but I suspect that's a long-shot.

The Glass shop (https://glassinlondon.co.uk) is currently being demolished to build a new 7 storey block of flats.

Thanks for the replies. I have found that the building is the same now as it was about 150 years ago!
It used to be stables and then a workshop in about 1900 and has been various factories and workshops ever since.
I did contact the current occupiers and they were helpful. Although I would still like to find out what it was in the 50s-70s if anyone has any information.
Thanks again
