Here’s an interesting enquiry from reader Tracey hardy, who’s interested in the history of the old mill, in Saddler Road, Brownhills, just at the bottom of Mill Road – originally a steam flour mill, it was a factory for a while then was converted into apartments in the 1990s.
I was wondering if you or anyone had any pictures or details of the history of Sadlers mill on Sadlers Rd please?
My grandma worked there back in the day when it was a shoe factory.
I lived there for a while about 10 years ago but we couldn’t find much out about it.
I know it was a pressings factory that made cooker parts at one point, and of course, we’ve covered the history as a flour mill in the post on the history of Ogley Hay, but we have nothing on it in the intervening period.
I wasn’t aware of the history as a shoe factory! You learn something new every day…
Can anybody help? Comment here, please, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
