North Kilworth Pictures - Landau House and the Royal Implement Works


18. Landau House and the Royal Implement Works. The Ball family has worked in the village for nearly two centuries and in the 19th century set up the Royal Implement Works. This was a hive of industry employing over 50 people making carriages, carts, wagons, specialist vans and agricultural implements. Many of their goods went to the Royal estates at Sandringham and Windsor. The adjacent fine red brick house with bay windows and ogee mesh porch was named Landau House in recognition of the carriages produced by its owner.
