Sunbeam Ltd

John Marston's Sunbeamland produced aero engines, components and general machining together with shell parts. The factory continued with the production of cycles including large orders of the 'Military Sunbeam' for the French Government. Of the 830 employees 230 were female.

The company resumed after the war and continues as the specialist Marston Aerospace division of UTC Aerospace Systems.

The factory building has been empty for many years and is now finally being converted to apartments.
