Looking towards Morville Street, 1964

Sherborne, 1964


22nd February 2016


The Sherborne Rubber Company Ltd was formed in 1937, originally making parts for the war effort in Sherborne Street, Ladywood, Birmingham.


When the redevelopment of Broad Street they moved to Icknield Square in 2001 where they stayed until 2007, moving to Perry Barr, Birmingham.

Courtyard in Sherborne Street, 1961

Sherborne Rubber

Just a little something for you on the Sherborne Street.


On the picture of Frank Allart 1962, the little door on the right is the back door into St Barnabas Junior School lower playground.


That door was always locked. The school can be seen above the door.


Those five windows were to the top form classroom. My friend’s grandparents lived in the house, they were the caretakers for the factory and their name was Pierpoint.


Hope this helps in a small way.


Take care and great work, Ray
