Melford Road 41


Connected to the Sudbury silk industry and built by Kipling Pain and Co. The main house on left was their foreman's house. In 1861 Benjamin Brown, silk umbrella foreman, lived here with his wife Elizabeth, a silk winder, and boys Joshua and William. The white building just visible at the rear was what survived of the two storey silk factory but it has since been demolished in early 2020 and the bricks incorporated into a modern extension.
