1816 and which was important to the industrial development of
Stratford, centred in this area. The firm was founded in 1830
by James Cox and Edward Fordham Flower, the latter leaving to
found Flower's Brewery, an important local concern, in the
following year; it is the oldest family firm still in
existence in Stratford. The building is an unusual survival
and important as a reminder of the industrial nature of this
area.
