Barratt London, the housebuilder behind the Hayes Village development on Nestles Avenue, is appealing to members of the local community in a bid to find historic images of the former Nestlé chocolate and coffee factory. As Barratt London converts the iconic building into a collection of stylish apartments, the housebuilder hopes to honour its fascinating history.
Barratt London is eager to hear from individuals who worked in the building in past decades, or perhaps a local photographer, that may have some historic internal or external photos of the factory in its heyday. The housebuilder is sensitively converting the former factory into a range of attractive new Art Deco-style apartments, whilst opening up a previously inaccessible part of the canal for the public to enjoy.
Ed McCoy, Sales Director for Barratt London, comments: “The Nestlé Factory is a much-loved Hayes landmark, so it is only right to keep the history of the building alive through the stories and memories of local people. As new residents buy and eventually move into our Hayes Village development, we feel it is important that they have the opportunity to learn about the exciting role their home played in the production of instant coffee and chocolate, alongside how much the site means to the people of Hayes. We encourage anybody who has any photographs, artefacts or anecdotes about the factory to get in touch.”
