Treadgolds is a series of linked Georgian and Victorian buildings in Bishop Street, Portsea. The Treadgolds family bought the building in 1809 it stayed in business until 1988 as an iron and steel merchants. It was turned into a museum but this closed in 2003 due to health and safety reasons. Part of it is now living accommodation.

It was great to see the above photos of Treadgolds, Portsea.
As an apprentice Joiner with A.E.Hadley in 1953, I can remember having to go to Treadgolds each week to pick up screws and bolts on my bike.
I would be great to see the place again.

Great to see the article on Treadgolds. My grandfather whose name was Fred Thompson, worked there for many years. When he started there he used to deliver the goods using a horse and cart but later with the coming in of a lorry he worked in the store itself. I have happy memories of going with him to feed the cats during holiday times and playing on the wheel of the guillotine. Good times and I wish it was still open to the public. If people are living there is it really unsafe ??
