Brinton's Handcart

For many years, Brinton's Carpet Factory was a major employer in the Kidderminster area. A large Goods Receiving shed was built in the GWR Goods yard to hold the output from this and the other carpet producers in the Town. This now forms the SVR 'North Star' Carriage and Wagon Works in Kidderminster yard.

This hand cart was used to move small carpets and items around the yard. It was presented to the Friends after the closure of the main factory.

Work commenced in Jan 2006 with the wheels being rubbed down and painted in post office red. Next followed the painting of the metal work in black and the main body of the cart in Brinton's colour scheme of dark blue. The sign writing was traced from an original example.
