Here's a brief historical account of THE BOTTLE FACTORY, OLD TOWN, SWINDON, an impressive and sympathetic conversion completed in 2019:
In 1870, Mr. Edwin Robert Ing, a businessman who had owned a chemist at 12 Wood Street since 1855, constructed the building on Lansdown Road at the end of his home's garden to house the "North Wilts Aerated Water Manufactory." He had previously built his home, Walton House on Bath Road in 1868, which was later replaced in the 1980s. Initially, Ing's bottles were simply marked as E.R. ING, then E.R ING & CO, with the introduction of his famous crossed Battle Axe logo, and finally, marked as E.R. ING & SON.
In 1973, Ace Soft Drinks, owned by Arkell, took over the premises. In the early 1980s, Ace Soft Drinks converted the building into offices and recording studios for Wyvern Television, later used by Videographics, a media company. Today, this vibrant history makes The Bottle Factory an integral part of Swindon's heritage and a captivating place to call home.
