Brinkley's Past

What do you know about the history of Brinkley Road? I had an email recently from someone who wants to find out more about Brinkley Road's long and glorious past. She writes:
"I am currently researching the history of Brinkley Road, specifically Brinkley Court - I have discovered that St Matthias church was built on the site in 1906 - subsequently relocated to Cheam Common Road in 1966.

It has been mentioned that there used to be a factory on the site after the relocation? Does anyone know what it produced? Also if anyone has any info for pre 1906 I would be very grateful..."
If anyone can help fill in the gaps please comment bellow as per usual. Thanks.

Of course this could also be one for the Brinkster...
