picture shows Cadbury Brother works at Bournville.

Foreground is known as the Girl Grounds...ladies recreation area. Most of the works has been demolished and rebuilt since this photo. Major rebuilding took place post WW2.

You can make out the cooling ponds in the top left hand corner of the cricket pitch (Mens Recreation grd)and on the far left of the pond the mens outdoor swimming pool.

Yuo can see all the railway sidings branching off the mainline into the Cadbury works too.

This picture and EPW024809 show the Garden City style housing provided for the Bournville workers by the Quaker Cadbury family. These houses, well spaced out and set in large gardens stand in contrast to the terraces on the other side of the railway line. Also noted is the cricket ground, which was one of a number of community facilities provided. These also included a ‘village’ carillon (a set of bells in a tower, played using a keyboard) on the village green. I cannot find this distinctive, pepper pot shaped building in any of the pictures. While the factory no longer has any Quaker connections the Bournville Housing Trust still manages the housing stock.

This is Cadbury Bournille works before the new buildings were built, you can confirm by the playing field and the railway curve just to the left of your dot on blue at the top right.

Also a confirmation is the canal and no sidings etc again top right.

Dear all,



That’s great; we’ve reviewed your comments and thanks to your help we can update the catalogue with the Bournville Works. The revised record will appear here in due course. Hope you have the same success solving some of our other mysteries!

Sure is Cadbury's a lot of the features, such as sports ground, railway sidings (without rails) are still there

Very straight canal, with railway on south side, from middle right, to top left. Don't know what Industrial site does.
