The outside walls of my new cottage are decorated with 2 large steel wheels. They are stamped "Bedford Eng. Uttoxeter". Any info boys and girls? Please.

Could be this lot About Us | technically they are Bedford Engineering Co. (Manchester)

Based in Stockport of all places (much closer to Uttoxeter than Bedford!)

Although the earliest records with Companies House only go back to 1961, the website says they were founded in 1918.

I should have gone to specsavers🤔 it is Bamford. There is also a date on one but I can't make it out until I clean it up.
You just beat me to it Dave. Having worked in engineering all my life, I was interested in your post and a quick google came up with this,


I found the leighton Iron works, and did a search of it's history, and thought your wheel might have been 'rubbed over the years.

John,

And the family presumably involved with JCB's?
What relation was Henry to Joseph?
