The Wagon Works Pub - Eastleigh: The name of this pub reflects Eastleigh's connection with England's railways. Eastleigh became a railway town in 1891, when the London & South Western Railway opened its carriage and wagon works, next to the station. The town grew rapidly. Expansion accelerated, after repair shops were added in 1903 and the locomotive works opened in 1910. The Eastleigh Works constructed the King Arthur 4-6-0 classes and all 16 Lord Nelson locomotives. The first of the series is now in the National Railway Museum, in York.
Kidderminster Premier Inn: With Kidderminster renowned as a centre for carpet manufacturing, this site was rejuvenated with the conversion of the former weaving mill into a new department store and hotel. Slingfield Mill was built in 1864 by Thomas Lea. The architects were Lockwood and Mawson of Bradford, well known for their textile mills. The finest yarns for the carpet industry were spun on machinery driven by a steam engine powered from boilers in the nearby boiler house with its square chimney. In 1920 Lea Ltd became part of Carpet Trades who sold it to Brintons in 1948. By the late 1980's yarn spinning had ceased and in 2003 the Mill became a retail outlet.
