This is the siding which had its own bridge. It ended at the last factory in Heather Park Drive (it made and bottled orange squash). The first downstairs maisonette after this factory was the Heath and Joiner Rent office.

Rizla Ltd. The only product made here, I believe, were the packets of cigarette papers used by men who 'rolled their own'. The tobacco was bought separately and laid carefully into the paper, rolled into a tube shape, and a gummed edge was licked and pressed onto the other edge along the paper tube. Light with a flame, smoke and enjoy!
