Brintons archive helps transform Bantock House Museum

4th March 2014

Brintons were approached by Bantock House Museum to produce carpets for their entrance hall and staircase. The Curators from the museum visited Brintons archive in Kidderminster to select a design that complemented the Arts and Crafts surroundings of the Edwardian property.

During their research Curators Helen Steatham and Ross Young discovered an image (shown right) of Thos Bantock & Co the haulage company owned by the Bantock Family, transporting large rolls of carpet from the Brintons factory.

It’s a steep haul from the factory to the railway station in Kidderminster and fully loaded Bantock lorries are seen being pulled by a team of horses. Cobbles were laid on Station Hill to give the horse’s better grip. This shipment was bound for Macy’s, the famous department store.
