Lucas Factory - Hockley

Lucas Factory - Hockley

Lucas industries began in the 19th Century under Jospeh Lucas, a well known industrialist from Birmingham.  Lucas industries as we knew it began in 1872 moving from Carver street to is final spot 'Great King Steert' in Hockley.

Lucas Industries ran a number of sports clubs for its work force, boxing being amongst just one of them. 

FFOH is looking to recognise Birmingham's factories, industries, labour clubs and working clubs with stories to tell about any fighters who may have walked through their gates at one time.
