This is where the main factory of the original company was located and the business continued manufacturing until the 1960s, the last model being the Interceptor (Royal Enfield Interceptor). The Redditch factory was closed in 1967 and production was moved to the Bradford on Avon factory, which closed in 1970, ending English Enfield manufacturing. In the mid 1950s, the company established a partner, Madras Motors (Royal Enfield Motors), in Madras, India, who manufactured the Bullet (Royal Enfield Bullet) 350 model. The Indian factory is still very successful, with new Indian models and has taken Royal Enfield into its third century of manufacturing. Some of the original factory buildings in Redditch still remain, most are in a derelict state and can be seen from Hewell Road. Some buildings have been taken over and now make the old part of Enfield Industrial Estate close to the town centre on Hewell Road.
