Description:Exterior view of Bradbury's wheelwrights workshop, Abbots Bromley, looking towards Bagot Street. The forge is in the foreground and the workshop behind.

George F. Bradbury Senior bought the wheelwright's business and premises in Abbots Bromley from Mr Robinson in 1864. He and his son George F. Bradbury Junior ran a wheelwrights, joiners and undertakers business here until 1941, when it was passed on to his daughter and son-in-law, William Hammersley. They in turn passed it on to their son in 1971. The wheelrights had ceased by the end of the 1970s. The Bradburys had also operated as builders, painters and decorators.
