The Sweet Life in Bourneville

28th November 2023 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm

A talk by Bob Booth

In 1879, George and Richard Cadbury moved their factory from the city centre to the Bournbrook Estate some four miles distant. Transport links were good and there was clean water from the River Bourn. They named the new factory site Bournville. George Cadbury was appalled at working class living conditions and wanted to provide decent housing for his workers. He planned a model village of well built cottages with large gardens.
