Watts Factors - Engineering Workshop.
Trevor wrote: "... This is a photo of the engine reconditioning shop at Watts (Factors) Ltd, it was taken from the stairs leading to the Fuel pump section. The engineer in the shot is, I think David Wilks, who lived in Bream. The windows in the walls look into the crankshaft grinding shop. The work mainly involved Gardner diesel engines, but it was not unusual to overhaul Leyland, AEC, Cummins and Perkins engines in these workshops. The company had two test benches on site,which every engine rebuilt had to go on for at least four hours before being sent to the customer after final inspection".
