Albert Bird - A History of Brockham Park


From Gentleman's residence to award-winning laboratory.

Brockham Park was a Victorian mansion which became the site of one of the most important pharmaceutical discoveries of the 20th century.

In this book, the author traces the history of the property as a private home and then moves on to the ground-breaking research carried out in the Beecham laboratories. This work led to the award-winning development of many new penicillins which continue to relive suffering and save lives worldwide.
