Kidderminster is another great motor trade town to explore! A thousand years ago this grand town was called Chedeminstre, and now celebrates with year round theatre, a falconry centre, mini gold sites, and music festivals in June and July.

Beneath Kidderminster parklands rests the Drakelow Tunnels, built in 1941 for the Rover car company as a shadow factory and became a site for building tank engines. Later the British Government converted the tunnels into a top secret Nuclear Bunker – one of which the country would be operated from in the worst case scenario of the Cold War, complete with Blast Doors and Air Locks. Come the 1980s the secrecy was over and the Drakelow Tunnels are now open for tours! Amazingly, this is the only publically accessible WW2 Shadow Factory and Cold War bunker in the UK.

Consider a motor trade vacancy in Kidderminster, possessing fascinating historical connections with vehicle manufacturing and the automotive trade industry.
