Former Robey & Co. Works

The former site of Robey & Co. Globe Works, used during WW1 for aircraft manufacture, now Jackson's Building Centre.

Robey was the second Lincoln company to turn to aircraft manufacturing during World War I at their Globe Works. They also designed and built prototypes of their own airframes, which were flown from their airfield at Bracebridge Heath. Types built included: Sopwith Gunbus, Robey Scout, Short 184 Seaplane, Maurice Farman Longhorn and Robey Peters.

The Globe Works site on Canwick Road is used by Jackson Building Centres Ltd; their Pelham House Headquarters is one of the aircraft shops.
