This is all information was saved when the engineering works was closed in 1963 The items shown above come from old catalogues that where saved. The contents of the factory was sold as scrap and the documentation was lost. The works which employed a large number of people in its better years was reduced down to about 3 in the last year.
One of the main reasons for the closure was the redevelopment of this area of Nottingham called St. Ann's, a area of old run down housing and factories. The site where Robin Hood Works was is now a new housing estate on a different road layout.
