Cadbury’s laundry check

Bournville village and factory was a social and industrial experiment. Motivated by their Quaker beliefs and keen business sense, Richard and George Cadbury relocated their factory from Bull Street to Bournbrook in 1879. George Cadbury believed the social and moral welfare of the factory worker was the responsibility of the employer. Leisure, education and welfare facilities were as important as improving the working environment.
