Bracebridge motor Body Works

Does anyone know where the Bracebridge Motor Body Works was situated? There is a photograph of some Thorneycroft buses outside the building circa 1929 in an excellent book by Cyril Cooke but I cannot find the location.

I believe it was on the site behind the current ESSO garage in Bracebridge Lincoln , adjacent to the river .

Thank you Steve

I visited the site on the Newark Road and there is a building with Bracebridge Motor Body Works on the gable end facing the river.

There is also a large building formerly used by Eddie Gordon which is certainly big enough to house buses.

The photo in Cyril Cooke's book (Lincoln Corporation transport) taken from the R Marshall collection shows several buses in front of a multi bay workshop. Have you seen the photo?

Regards
Paul
