J.W. Evans Silver Factory
Come and get a unique glimpse into the lost industrial world of J. W. Evans Silver Factory, one of the most complete surviving historic factories in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter! Behind the doors of four seemingly normal terraced houses is a time capsule full of thousands of dies, original equipment, stock and records of a family business with over 120 years of history.
We will be displaying and original plate camera from our collection that was used by Harold Evans to document the workers and the J. W. Evans factory during the early 1900s. We will also be displaying creative work from local school children that was inspired by the factory.
Minimum age is 16yrs. We advise that unfortunately the site is not suitable for those with poor mobility, due to the uneven floors and narrow walkways throughout the building. As an enclosed site with compact spaces, visitors will be asked to place bags in our bag store for the duration of their visit. They are welcome to keep valuables on their person.
