Mayor's Parlour, Town Hall, Huddersfield.

I am glad to have this opportunity of contributing a foreword to this Centenary Edition of the Huddersfield Official Handbook, and giving a brief introduction to the town which you will find descrioed in the following pages.

The Centenary which we celebrate in 1968 is that of the Borough, which was incorporated on July 7, 1868, but the town has a much longer history than one hundred years. It is true to say, however, that the Industrial Revolution brought the town to the prominence and pre-eminence it now enjoys. It gave a tremendous impetus to the development of the trades and crafts which had long been practised in this district, and it called for the new skills and created new industries to keep pace with the advances of the age of the machine.

The workers in the industries of the town have a skill which has been inherent through many generations, and the products of this town are synonymous with quality. The vigour and adaptability of mill owners and management have advanced the trade of the town to the extent that products bearing the legend 'Made in Huddersfield" go round the world and are universally accepted as being of the highest quality.

I extend my cordial greetings and those of the citizens of Huddersfield to the many visitors from other parts of the country, and from other parts of the world, who may come to Huddersfield during the Centenary Year not only to see our products, but also to see how we live and enjoy ourselves - how, for instance, we enjoy music and music-making for which the town is also famous. I am sure that visitors will find the town a much more pleasant place than their imagination of an industrial town in Northern England might have painted for them.

To all who may see this Handbook, but have not the opportunity to visit the town, I extend the same greetings, and hope that from these pages they will form an agreeable impression of Huddersfield, and also find information which will be helpful to them concerning any aspects of the industrial, commercial, cultural and social activities within the County Borough.

J. SYKES Mayor of Huddersfield.

TOWN CLERK

The Town Clerk's Department is concerned with the legal, administrative and secretarial aspects of local government, as well as with some special duties which are the responsibility of local authorities. These general headings or categories cover a great number of detailed matters, some of which are enumerated in the following paragraphs. Under the heading of legal matters may be mentioned the preparation of contracts, title deeds and other documents; the conduct of civil and criminal cases in the courts; the conduct of the Corporation's case at public inquiries of all kinds; the preparation of byelaws and the supervision of all Parliamentary work, which includes the obtaining of Local Acts and Orders to assist the Corporation in carrying out its duties. The secretarial responsibilities include the preparation of committee agendas and the summoning of all meetings, the recording of all minutes and their submission to the Monthly Council Meeting, and correspondence with all Government Departments. The Department also has responsibilities connected with the election of councillors, the conduct of Parliamentary and Municipal elections and the compilation of the register of electors. It also contains the Local Land Charges Register and the Register of Corporation Mortgages. In addition to these duties, there are also ceremonial matters which require attention on the occasion of events of civic importance, e.g. royal visits.

Readers in Huddersfield enjoy the use of one of the most spacious central libraries in the country. Situated in Ramsden Street, it includes a Central Lending Department, a large Junior Library and two Reference Libraries, one for Science, Technology and Commerce, and the other for the Humanities, Social Sciences and general inquiries. The Central Lending Department has a stock of over 80,000 items, including music, gramophone records and play sets. The emphasis is upon non-fiction which comprises five-sixths of the stock. A special room is devoted to periodicals and books in foreign languages both European and Indian. The outlying parts of the town are served by three static and four travelling libraries. The latter carry a selection of both children's and adult books, visiting more than twenty-five points once or twice a week each. Visitors to the town may borrow books on their home library tickets. There are over 25,000 carefully selected children's books distributed between the Central and Branch libraries ranging from picture books for the very young to books on science and careers for school-leavers. In conjunction with the Education Department every school in the Borough has its own library with a permanent

27

Page 30

stock of reference books supplemented by circulating collections of general interest which are changed once a year.

The General Reference Library includes a room for the study of local history embracing photographs, maps, pamphlets and archives as well as printed material. The files of local newspapers, many on microfilm, go back more than a century. There is also a collection of several thousand illustrations of general information value which is available for loan. A complete file is maintained of all local organisatons. Individual study rooms are provided for research workers. The Technical Reference Library includes a complete set of British Standards, all British patents issued during the past thirty-five years, and a selection of periodicals having special reference to local industries. There are numerous trade and local directories not restricted to the British Isles. Facilities exist for making photo-copies subject to the provisions of the Copyright Act. Both Refer- ence Libraries are open from nine until half past eight every weekday, except Saturday, when they close at half past five and are freely available to everyone.

The library is a member of the Yorkshire Regional Library System, the National Lending Library for Science and Technology, and the Huddersfield and District Information Service. The library also co-operates with numerous local organisations providing speakers and, as far as circumstances permit, accommoda- tion.

The whole of the top floor of the public library building is devoted to Art Gallery purposes. The permanent collection, at least part of which is always on display, includes sculpture by Henry Moore, Epstein and Ralph Brown, oil paintings by George Morland, Charles Conder, Duncan Grant, Robert Medley, Matthew Smith, L. S. Lowry and Stanley Spencer. There are water colours by Copley Fielding, Peter de Wint, and Wilson Steer, as well as drawing by Sickert, Cotman, Ben Nicholson, David Jones, Ruskin, Constable and Gainsborough. These works are supplemented by loan exhibitions from the Arts Council, the Victoria and Albert Museum and other sources. Local artistic bodies are also granted the use of the facilities of the Gallery. In all there are about fifteen special exhibitions every year. For students the resources of the art gallery are supplemented by a substantial collection of illustrated books on the fine arts in the General Reference Library.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES, SHOPS AND PETROLEUM DEPARTMENT

The Weights and Measures, Shops and Petroleum Department is part of the new Civic Centre with premises in Albion Street.

The functions of the Department are closely connected with the trade of the district and offer an important public protection service.

Commerce and industry depend on a uniformly administered weights and measures system and the custody and safety of the Local Standards of weight and measure rest with this Department of the Corporation.

The duties of the Department in administering weights and measures legislation can be briefly described as follows:

(1) The testing and stamping of all new and repaired weighing and measuring equipment used or intended for use for trade.

(2) The regular inspection of weighing and measuring equipment in all trading and industrial premises where it is used.

(3) The testing of weighing and measuring equipment voluntarily submitted to the Department.

(4) The detection and prevention of fraud in connection with weighing and measuring to ensure that traders and the public alike receive correct weight and measure.

(5) The enforcement of the law controlling the sale of commodities by weight, measure or number, and for this purpose the inspection of premises where such commodities are packed, held for sale, or sold.

The Department is also responsible for administering the Shops Acts and the Petroleum (Regulation) Acts. The former ensure that the requirements in respect of the hours of employment of Shop Assistants and Young Persons, and the requirements in respect of the Closing Hours of shops are duly observed. The latter that the provisions relating to the safeguarding of life and property against the hazards associated with the storage of petroleum spirit and mixtures of petroleum are complied with.

ESTATE AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

The Huddersfield Corporation is in the unique position of being the of a very large portion of the Town.

In 1920, at a cost of £1,300,000 and through powers conferred by a special Act of Parliament, the Corporation acquired the freehold of 4,300 acres of land which includes the entire central portion of the town.

The department was managed by the Estate Department of the Corporation until 1953, when the title was changed to Estate and Property Management Department with the additional duties of managing and maintaining all Corpora- tion owned properties.

In 1954 the Corporation acquired the Lockwood and Rashcliffe Estates from the Lockwood Trustees and other small estates have been acquired since that date, the largest of these being the Thornton Lodge Estate.

The Estate undertaking now produces an annual revenue exceeding £250,000 which is secured by properties let on 99, 999 years and other long leases.

The remainder of the revenue is produced from several large blocks of buildings in the town centre and from other undeveloped land.

WELFARE DEPARTMENT

The Welfare Committee was formed to undertake the Council's duties under the National Assistance Act, 1948, including the following: (a) the provision of residential accommodation for persons who by reason of age, infirmity or any other circumstances, are in need of care and attention which is not otherwise available to them; (b) the provision of clubs, recreation or meals for old people; (c) arrangements for promoting the welfare of handicapped persons; (d) the provision of temporary accommodation for persons who are in urgent need thereof, owing to circumstances which could not reasonably have been foreseen (e.g. fire or flood); (e) registration of homes for disabled and aged persons administered by private persons and voluntary organisations; (f) provision of temporary protection of property of persons admitted to hospitals or homes; and (g) burials or cremations in cases where no suitable arrangements appear to have been made.

HOMES FOR THE ELDERLY The provision of accommodation for elderly persons has been given much consideration and in this connection the Committee has fifteen homes. When the Act came into force in 1948, the Committee already had two homes, Pennine Grange at Salendine Nook, which now accommodates thirty residents, and Oaklands at Dalton, accommodating twenty-three residents. In order to increase the accommodation large houses were acquired and adapted as follows: Lands House, Rastrick (24 residents); Heathfield, Crosland Moor (22); Sandymount, Crosland Moor (14); Woodleigh, Edgerton (38); Stoneleigh, Edgerton (22); Moor View, Crosland Moor (14); Briarcourt, Lindley (26); Longdenholme, Greenhead Road (37); Thorpe Grange, Almondbury (24); Springfield, Edgerton (25). In addition the Committee has provided the following purpose-built homes: Hartley Manor, Bradley (39); The Homestead, Fernside (60); Oakes Villa, Reinwood (40). Castle Grange, Newsome is to be opened early in 1968 for 41 residents and Pennine Grange, Salendine Nook will be closed being no longer up to the standard required. The Building programme is not yet complete and further accommodation will be provided to meet the growing and unsatisfied demand. At each of the homes the residents are free to come and go as they please and are generally helped to feel that it is their home and that they should co-operate in making a happy abode. It is only too well realised that although fine houses with excellent furnishings may be provided, it is the spirit of service in which the staff work that makes a successful home. The growing need today is for ground-floor accommodation, five of the homes have lifts, and four of them are staffed twenty-four hours a day. The amenities provided include a qualified chiropody service, handicrafts, television, radio, piano, religious services, summer outings, library books, newspapers, periodicals etc. as well as concert parties and other entertainment provided by voluntary effort. The Welfare Committee also admits persons for short periods to enable relatives of the old people concerned to take a holiday or rest.

HANDICAPPED PERSONS So far as blind persons are concerned the Huddersfield Society for the Blind is appointed as Agent to carry out some of the duties, and they administer The Holly, a home for the blind, and a social centre. The Huddersfield and District Institute for the Deaf and Dumb has also been appointed as an Agent of the Committee to undertake work in connection with deaf and they provide a Missioner and a social centre. Other arrangements made for the disabled include the provision of walking aids, and at the home of handicapped people many alterations have been carried out to assist them such as provision of hand rails, adaptations to stairs, doors and

31

Page 34

bathrooms, and the supply of various gadgets. The Committee undertake the work of widening gateways and paths, etc., in order to allow access for invalid carriages.

DAY CENTRES Day Centres have been opened at Moldgreen for elderly people and at Longdenholme for handicapped persons. A special bus has been provided to provide transport for those persons unable to use public transport, and a mid-day meal is provided at Moldgreen.

WELFARE CENTRE The Committee has accepted tenders for the building of a Centre in King Street which will be adequate to cater for the needs of the Welfare Department and a number of Voluntary Organisations for the provision of day centres, clubs, workshops, etc. for handicapped and aged persons in the town.

DOMICILIARY WELFARE In conjunction with the Women's Royal Voluntary Service the Committee supply mid-day meals to deserving elderly and handicapped persons in their own homes. The Welfare Committee undertakes the management of the Roebuck Memorial Homes and Cottage Homes at Waterloo which consist of a total of twenty-eight dwellings. The Department is concerned with many duties involving the care of aged and handicapped persons and the rehabilitation of problem families. Teams of Social Welfare Officers, Home Teachers and Welfare Assistants are now concentrating in an effort to provide services whereby elderly people can live in their own homes as long as possible and live a full and satisfying life. With this in mind the Welfare Committee is co-operating with the Estate and Property Management Committee in providing Wardens for sheltered housing.

The Local Education Authority maintains thirty-eight Primary, fourteen Secondary and two Special Schools, while Further Education is provided in a College of Technology, a Technical College and a growing number of Adult Education Centres. The Authority is also responsible for the maintenance of two College of Education which undertake the training of teachers. Secondary education is at present provided in two types of schools, modern and grammar, both of which include technical subjects in their curricula, but the Education Committee will shortly be involved in reorganising their secondary schools into a comprehensive system which has received approval in principle from the Secretary of State for Education and Science. This scheme will provide for education up to the age of 16 years in a number of fully comprehensive schools, while those wishing to continue beyond the age of compulsory education will have a choice of Colleges for Young People - either Ramsden Technical College or one of a few "New Colleges" dealing solely with "sixth-form studies." The Committee recognise that such a reorganisation cannot be satisfactorily undertaken without considerably more new Secondary School building, and it must be some time before any change can be completed. Of the fourteen Secondary Schools, more than half are in buildings erected since 1950, and the remainder cccupy premises which, while older, have been so thoroughly adapted or extended as to make comparable provision. The same policy of improvement of existing school buildings has been carried out systematically by the Authority during recent years in connection with Primary Schools as well, side by side with the complete re-organisation of all schools as between Primary and Secondary education. Of the two Day Special Schools for educationally sub-normal children which have been established by the Authority, one is a small school to deal with the specific problems of children of particularly low intelligence and to act as an assessment centre. The Authority has recently constructed considerable extensions to the College of Technology amounting almost to the erection of a complete new College. Granted "Regional" status some ten years ago, the College has recently been nominated by the Department of Education and Science as one of the new "Polytechnics" to concentrate on advanced studies, and a scheme for the establishment of "Huddersfield Polytechnic" has been submitted to the Department accordingly. ‘

College

Page 36

A few years ago, Ramsden Technical College was separated from the College of Technology to deal with the more elementary work, and the former buildings of Huddersfield Royal Infirmary are now being adapted to give it a new home, but the growth of the College will require substantial additional building on its new site. Huddersfield College of Education (Technical) is one of four only in the whole country. Here again, much new building is under way, the new accommodation at Lindley having been extended to take 400 students, a number which is likely to be extended to 600 in the near future. The first of two multi- storey hostels is also in occupation in addition to a group of large houses, situated in a pleasant residential part of the town, which formed the original base of the College. Oastler College, a temporary day training college, is situated in the centre of the town. The work of this College is planned on the principle of close union with other educational institutions in the town, and the College of Technology in particular is playing an important part in the instruction of students. The Authority has proposed that it should be incorporated in the new Polytechnic.

WATER POLLUTION CONTROL

The Water Pollution Control Committee is charged with the responsibility of carrying out the powers and duties of the Council under all general and local Acts of Parliament relating to the disposal of waste waters and the control of pollution. In 1876 a scheme was proposed for intercepting the crude sewage which entered the river at several points at that time. At the same time land was acquired for the purpose of establishing a works for the purification of the sewage upon a system later to be determined. Work on the sewers was begun in May, 1880, and in 1888 the collected crude sewage was discharged to the River Colne at Deighton. In 1896 a scheme of sedimentation and polarite sand filtration was completed to treat 4% million gallons per day. The scheme was not a success and never treated more than 1% million gallons per day. In the years 1906-09 the plant was further extended and ten acres of percolating beds of Low Moor Clinker and humus tanks were added at Cooper Bridge. The design of the works was for a flow of 74 million gallons and the flow at that time was about 5,000,000 gallons per day. ' The effluent was of excellent quality but the extra purification afforded created a sludge problem which by 1911 was acute. After various visits to other works in England and on the Continent by members of the Council and officials it was decided to invite a private firm to work

Page 37

the sludge for the recovery of grease and fertilizer for profit. The scheme was not a success and the Corporation took over the liquidated assets of the company and with modifications succeeded in making the plant work very satisfactorily. The plant began operating in March, 1915. Unfortunately the rapidly growing chemical industry caused the closure of this plant from 1921 to 1924 and the re-siting of the chemical works whence a separate sewer and tanks were built to give separate preliminary treatment to these wastes. Two large sewers now enter the treatment works.

Towards the end of the Second World War the West Riding Rivers Board began to press for improvements shelved in September, 1939, and in 1946, when extensions to the works were under consideration, they recommended that a full comprehensive scheme be prepared to be capable of expansion, should the need arise, to deal with flows from the whole of the domestic sewage and trade waste of the River Colne and its tributaries. Under this recommendation the districts concerned at that time were as follows:

The above figures are approximate only and not of recent date. The sewage and trade waste of the lower Colne Valley U.D.C. from the old Johnny Moore's Hill sewage works were connected to the Corporation sewers in 1933. The flow from the upper Colne Valley U.D.C. was connected to the Corporation sewers in 1958. Agreement has been reached with Kirkburton U.D.C. for the acceptance for treatment of sewage and trade waste from the area, and the work is in progress to permit the connection to be made.

Preliminary discussions have taken place with the Honley and South Cros- land Joint Sewerage Board. Meltham U.D.C. has since reconstructed and extended its own treatment works, and Holmfirth U.D.C. is pursuing the same course.

Bearing in mind the River Board recommendations, extensions to the Huddersfield works were begun in 1952. Since that time shortages and restrictions on the availability of bricks, steel, labour and money have caused many delays. Expenditure to date on the reconstruction has amounted to £2,000,000, and it is anticipated that ultimately it will exceed £4,000,000.

Recent legislation, namely the Water Resources Act 1963, along with the Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) Acts of 1951 and 1961, will necessitate a much stricter control of the dscharge of effluents to streams causing a tighter super- vision on the access to sewers to prevent excessive treatment costs.

The average daily amounts of sewage and trade wastes treated at the works during 1966/67 were as follows:

Gallons per day Domestic sewage |___ ___ ___ ..... 5,550,000 Textile Trade Waste ___ ..... 2,475,000 Chemical Trade Waste ___ ..... 4,266,000 Infiltration Water ________ _ .... 2,213,500 Rain Water, etc. = _- -- -- --- _. 5,972,000 Total |__ ___ - --- - --- __ 20,476,500

Subject to variations due to activity of trade.

The present scheme has been designed to give acid precipitation and sedimentation to the domestic and textile wastes, separate lime precipitation and sedimentation to the chemical wastes and biological treatment of the settled combined flows in percolating beds by double filtration with some recirculation

The result of this treatment causes the production of three types of sludge:

1-Greasy domestic and textile sludge to be acid treated, pressure filtered, heat dried and solvent extracted for the recovery of by-products, grease and fertilizer.

2-Chemical wastes sludge, lime precipitated, pressure filtered, and dumped.

3-Biological sludge, gelatinous, treated with steam under pressure, pressure filtered, and composted with degreased material from No. 1 for sale as fertilizer.

The lands controlled by the Water Pollution Control Committee along the valleys of the Rivers Colne and Calder are divided broadly into three sites accord- ing to the phases of treatment.

1-The Deighton Works. This site is mainly for sedimentation and the production of the two primary sludges, namely the domestic and textile sludge, and the chemical sludge.

2-The Heaton Lodge and Cooper Bridge Works. These two sites are taken as one and are used for biological filtration on percolating beds and the separation of the humus sludge sloughing from the beds.

3-The Bradley Works. This site is intermediate between the other two works and will be the sludge treatment site, with a common press house for the three types of sludge, a Heat Treatment plant, Drying and Grease extraction plants, and Composting and Fertilizer plants. f

36

Page 39

It must be borne in mind that the Huddersfield Works are situated in a narrow valley, with the surrounding districts heavily populated and industrialised. Level agricultural land for the disposal of sludge is not available. Tipping sites are becoming more difficult to obtain. The sludge treatment problem therefore requires preparation of the maximum amount of sludge for disposal as by-products for wider distribution.

The present quantities of sludge produced per annum amount to:

Domestic and TeXtile SIUdg@ seee ee ere eee eee e eee} 45,000 tons Chemical SIUUQ@ = vere eer reer vre erea r er eee eee 61,000 tons Biological sludge .............. o 17,000 tons

Total 123,000 tons

These quantities will increase as the extensions progress and the further connections are made to the sewers.

By-products sold amount annually to 3,500-4,000 tons fertilizer, 600 tons

grease. Gross annual COSt Of WOFK$ = erea e aar er eee £369,976 1966-67 Nett annual COSt t0O FAt@EPAYC@T = keer keke £190,947 1966-67

Taking the population at present draining to the works at 150,000 means a

cost of sewage disposal of 6d. per person per week, or less than 1d. per day per inhabitant.

PUBLIC CLEANSING AND HAULAGE DEPARTMENT

The department is responsible for the collection and disposal of household refuse; for transporting goods, equipment, materials and personnel as required for all departments of the Corporation, and for the purchase, storage and distribution of coal and coke required by Corporation departments.

The total fleet of the department comprises 65 vehicles with diesel engines, 9 with petrol engines, 2 loading shovels, 1 dozer, 1 fork-lift truck, 3 chauffeur-driven cars and 4 self-drive cars. The department also operates the transport side of the

school meals and mobile library services and is responsible for the inspection of the town's taxis.

Maintenance of these vehicles and of other departments' vehicles and equipment is carried out in the well-equipped garage at Vine Street, Leeds Road.

38

Page 41

One of the latest vehicles acquired is a large coal or coke wagon with a capacity of 8 tons, the body of which is divided into four compartments, thus enabling four different grades of coal or coke to be conveyed in one journey. The driver-operator is able to load direct into cellars by means of a conveyor boom or he may use bags filled by the autoweigh bagging equipment which is fitted on the wagon.

During the last four years the fleet of refuse collection wagons has been entirely modernised and the department operates the latest type of continuous- compression vehicle designed to cope with the ever-increasing volume of refuse. Although it only has a legal obligation for the removal of household refuse, the department accepts a moral responsibility for the disposal of certain trade and industrial waste. A large part of the trade refuse is collected by means of a system using 14 cu. yd. containers which are emptied by a hydraulic device fitted to the refuse wagon. Industrial waste is removed by the Dempster-Dumpster system, whereby large containers of 8 or 12 cu. yd. capacity are hired out to firms and collected when full on request. Both types of bulk refuse container are also in use at hospitals, multi-storey flats and various other premises where large amounts of refuse are produced.

In an endeavour to keep the town free from unsightly dumps of refuse, bulky articles of furniture, etc., are collected free of charge on request from domestic premises. Another recent responsibility of the department is the collection and disposal of abandoned cars, and motorists whose cars fail to pass the test are advised to contact the department for advice as to the removal of their cars, in

order to avoid the large penalties which may be imposed under the Civic Amenities Act. ~

Disposal of the refuse is almost entirely by controlled tipping, but available tipping space is rapidly being used up and unless further sites are obtained very quickly it will be necessary to resort to incineration.

For economic reasons, salvage of waste materials has now been discontinued with the exception of waste paper, which makes a valuable contribution to the relief of the rates. The department has a very modern and efficient paper salvage plant at the Hillhouse Depot.

ENGINEER AND SURVEYORS DEPARTMENT

The construction and maintenance of roads and bridges, street lighting, the construction and maintenance of sewers and the extensions to the Treatment Works of the Department of Water Pollution Control are the responsibility of the Borough Engineer and Surveyor's Department together with a variety of other matters such as the operation of the Building Regulations and the Corporation's powers under various Acts and Byelaws covering caravan sites, dangerous buildings, etc.

ROADS

There are at present approximately 223 miles of roads within the Borough maintained by the Corporation, of which some 51 are classified roads, and the current annual expenditure on maintenance and repair improvements, snow removal, etc., is over £500,000 and the gross annual expenditure of the Depart- ment on all services is approximately £950,000 on revenue account.

Huddersfield is an important junction of the heavy flows of traffic from the West Riding to Lancashire and from Sheffield and Wakefield to Bradford, and congestion in the town has been eased by the construction of the Eastern section of the Inner Ring Road at a cost of over £700,000.

The construction of the Western section of the Inner Ring Road is planned to commence in 1969 to complete the inner ring round the town centre.

Further major improvements to classified roads to meet the demands of ever-increasing flows will follow on in accordance with an agreed programme of works to be authorised by the Ministry of Transport to the West Riding Conurbation Highways Authorities of which Huddersfield is a member.

The widening to dual carriageway of the first section of Wakefield Road, including the reconstruction of Somerset Bridge, has just been completed, and work is now proceeding on the widening of Leeds Road to dual carriageway from the present dual carriageway to the junction with St. Andrews Road at an estimated cost of £350,000.

From this point to the Borough Boundary at Cooper Bridge a new Freeway is planned leaving the remainder of Leeds Road at its present width.

Work will shortly be commencing on widening another section of New Hey Road from Tanyard Road to Mount at an estimated cost of £337,000. This will afford easy access to the new M62 Motorway, of which 3 miles will be within the Borough.

Huddersfield is a hilly town with over 1,000 feet difference in height above sea level between the Eastern and Western sides of the town, and being in the lee of the Pennines experiences special difficulties in winter with snow and frost. The Department operates the latest type snow-clearance equipment, including a Swiss snow blower, and organisation to deal quickly with such emergencies when they arise, and was one of the first Authorities to install an electrical road heating installation in the carriageways of a main road hill in the town centre.

The Department is well equipped with mechanical plant, including excavators, bulldozers, road-sweepers, gully emptiers, Barber Greene spreader finisher, and all the usual plant required for roadworks.

The Department is also responsible for the construction of new roads and sewers to permit Corporation Estate development.

SEWERAGE AND MAIN DRAINAGE

There are some 260 miles of public sewers in the town, which is drained by gravity on the combined system to the Corporation's Sewage Treatment Works at Ashgrove Road. The main intercepting sewer, which varies in diameter from 78in. to 30in., is laid along the valley of the River Colne and extends over a distance of five miles from the Treatment Works to Milnsbridge, where the main outfall sewer from the Colne Valley Urban District is connected into it.

Several important extensions to the sewerage system have been carried out in recent years at a cost of nearly one million pounds. These include the 2¢$-mile main intercepting sewer between Firth Street and the Borough Boundary at Milnsbridge; the Lindley and Marsh Relief Sewer; the New Hey Road Relief Sewer; the Dalton Valley Sewer which also provides for the drainage of sewage from 11,000 acres of Kirkburton U.D.C. area to the Corporation treatment works, and the Lamb Hall Road sewer.

Work is now in progress on the following schemes, which are estimated to cost £340,000: The Leeds Road Sewer (Whitacre Street to Cinderfield Dyke) and

rising main from Colne Bridge, the Grimescar Valley Sewer and the Cowlersley Sewer.

The Department maintains all sewers and deals with numerous cases of defective drainage to properties as they arise.

BRIDGES

There are fifty-six bridges of over 10ft. span in the Borough, twenty-seven of which are in main traffic routes. Some of these bridges are not strong enough to carry the large number of abnormal indivisible loads weighing up to 240 tons which pass through the Borough, resulting in long diversions for such loads.

Whilst all the bridges are regularly and properly maintained, the reconstruction of the weak bridges cannot be carried out until Government Grants are available for this work.

Somerset Bridge has been strengthened and widened by construction of a 76ft. span reinforced concrete hinged arch to give an overall width of 100ft. The reconstruction of the first of the weak bridges in Leeds Road will shortly be started, and the old girder bridge in Gasworks Street is now being replaced.

STREET LIGHTING

The gradual change from Gas to Electric lighting commenced after the war is nearly complete.

In 1948 there were 4,004 Gas and 2,179 Electric Lamps and in November 1967 there were 290 Gas and 10,720 Electric Lamps. These figures reflect the continued expansion of Street Lighting in the Borough.

The main roads are equipped with 400-watt mercury vapour lamps and some are now being relighted by sodium lamps mounted at 35ft. The Town Centre is lighted by fluorescent lamps, and around the Civic Centre are five lamps mounted at 80ft. Three of these, using six 400-watt high-pressure sodium lamps each, are the first of their kind in the country.

EXTENSIONS TO THE TREATMENT WORKS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER POLLUTION CONTROL

A large scheme of extension and reconstruction of the Treatment Works has become necessary so as to make them adequate to meet modern requirements of standard of purity of the final effluent and the ever-increasing flow to the works.

Since the start of the extensions project the following extensive major works have been completed and brought into operation or are nearing completion:

(1) Additional sedimentation tank capacity for the preliminary treatment of chemical trade wastes.

(2) A sludge treatment plant for the pressure filtration of the various types of sludges produced, together with a sludge heat treatment plant, a boiler plant and composting and fertiliser plants.

(3) A biological filtration plant for the primary treatment of the tank effluents together with all the necessary pumping plant and other mechanical and electrical equipment.

The expenditure to date on the extensions scheme is about £2,000,000.

The reconstruction of the Cooper Bridge Works at a cost of £1,511,000 is in hand, and detailed designs are being prepared for the main inlet to the Deighton Works.

BUILDING SURVEYORS SECTION

An average of 1,800 plans per year are deposited and the Building Surveyor's Office is responsible for the examination of all plans for private development to see that they comply with the Building Regulations and the various Local Acts and Public Health Acts relating to both permanent and temporary buildings. Plans for layout of new streets within the Borough are dealt with in a similar manner.

Factories within the Borough are examined in regard to "means of escape in case of fire" and where required by the Factory Acts, certificates are issued.

Where Town Planning approval has been granted to caravan sites, site licences are issued under the "Caravan Site and Control of Development Act, 1960."

The offices and shops within the town are examined for means of escape in case of fire under the Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Act, 1963.

BOROUGH LABORATORY

Mr. Harral is in charge of the Borough Laboratory in the Civic Centre Annexe, Outcote Bank, working in close co-operation with Mr. Mallinder, whose headquarters are at the Borough Laboratory, Halifax. Both Laboratories are well equipped; the larger special apparatus such as spectrophotometer and flame photometer being housed in the more commodious premises at Halifax. The main work of the Laboratory is concerned with the examination of samples of Foods, Drugs, Water, Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs submitted by Corporation Inspectors. Samples are also analysed for firms and private individuals. The general public is unaware of the large amount of work entailed in the routine supervision of the quality and composition of foods and drugs, attention only being aroused when there is a prosecution for the sale of adulterated milk or perhaps some breach of Food Standards. Every type of food is carefully scrutinised by the Food Inspectors, and an increasing body of legislation controls its labelling and constitution. Hundreds of pre-packed commodities of every known brand must be examined to ensure that they comply with the Regulations and Orders governing the label, proportions of ingredients preservatives (where allowed) artificial colouring, presence of anti- oxidants and so on. Special claims for vitamins and minerals are investigated and checked. Watch is constantly kept for traces of poisonous impurities, for example lead and arsenic, which even in these days of enlightenment may occasionally be ingredients, preservatives (where allowed), artificial colouring, presence of anti- found. So also "foreign bodies," including fragments of glass, wood, cigarette ends, bandages, rodent droppings, etc., are sometimes encountered.

STATIONERY DEPARTMENT

The Stationery Department was opened on January 1, 1914, and a Stationery Manager appointed to deal with all the Printing and Stationery requirements and to establish a central Stores to provide immediate availability of the many items in common use by the various departments. By standardisation, competitive tendering and bulk purchasing considerable savings in costs are effected. The department is responsible for the centralised purchasing of printing, stationery and office furniture and equipment, in addition the department also extends its centralised purchasing of all kinds of Soap and Cleaning Material required for use in the Schools, Welfare Homes, Childrens Homes and other Corporation buildings. In April, 1965, the department moved to its present and more commodious premises at the Civic Centre Annexe, Outcote Bank and by the installation of modern typesetting, Offset Litho machines and plate making equipment the department, has by taking advantage of the new developments in the reproduction processes of these machines effected further economies in the printing costs of all departments.

BOROUGH ARCHITECTS DEPARTMENT

This department is responsible for the design and erection of all new buildings to meet the requirements of the various Committees of the Town Council, and for dealing with applications for Improvement Grants. The staff comprises Architects, Surveyors, Heating and Electrical Engineers, and Building Supervisors engaged on many different projects, including the Civic Centre, Housing, Educational Buildings, Hostels for the Aged, Children's Homes, Clinics, Youth Clubs, Bus Garages, Abattoir, Water Treatment Works, etc. The first phase of the Civic Centre was completed in 1965 and provided accommodation for the Borough Treasurer's Department, Education Department, Public Health Department and the Borough Architect and Planning Officer's

47

Page 50

Department. The second phase, completed in 1968, comprises Police Headquarters, Law Courts, and offices for the Weights and Measures Department.

During the post war period over 5,700 new dwellings have been completed. Various types of accommodation have been provided from Aged Persons Bungalows to 17-Storey Blocks of Flats.

During the same period the following important projects have been completed: Central Fire Station, Civil Defence Headquarters, Ambulance Station, Crematorium, Cattle Market, several Children's Homes and also Homes for Aged People, together with various educational projects including new schools of various types and the College of Education (Technical) at Lindley. At the present time work is proceeding on several redevelopment schemes in connection with the Council's Slum Clearance Programme and also on Fartown County Secondary School, Outlane County Primary School, Lowerhouses Voluntary (C.E.) Primary School, Crosland Moor (C.E.) Infant School, New Home for Aged at Newsome, Adult Training Centre, Longwood Water Treatment Works and the Modernisation of the Abattoir.

The value of work carried out by the department annually is approximately £1,000,000.

Standard and Discretionary Improvement Grants are made by the Council to help in meeting the cost of improving suitable houses by providing for the first time certain standard amenities, such as bath, W.C., wash-hand basin, hot water installation and larder. Grants are also made to convert into separate flats large houses which are too big for single families under the present circumstances. Since 1949 over 1,800 applications for Standard Grants and 600 applications for Discretionary Grants have been made and grants totalling over £250,000 have been made. A blooklet "House Improvement Grants" can be obtained from t Department free of charge and advice will gladly be given to intending applicants regarding procedure. It should be stressed that no grant can be paid if work has commenced before the applicant has been notified in writing that his application has been approved.

CHILD CARE

This department looks after children whose parents are ill or who are prevented by other circumstances from caring for them.

The Children Act of July, 1948, centralised in one department the work previously done by:

(a) the Health Committee for children in residential nurseries.

(b) the Education Committee for children brought before the Juvenile Courts, and Adoptions.

(c) the Welfare Committee who, in the war years, cared for evacuated children, some of whom lived in a residential home.

The new Children and Young Persons Act, 1963, came into operation on February 1st, 1964, which gave Local Authorities the duty to make available such advice, guidance and assistance as may promote the welfare of children by diminishing the need to take children into care or keep them in care, and if the Local Authority think fit, includes provision for giving assistance.

Prior to 1950 there were five children's homes and one nursery which could accommodate 90 school children and 30 under-fives, but early in the nineteen-fifties difficulties were experienced in recruiting suitable staff who were capable of caring

48

Page 51

for large groups of children and the children themselves coming, as most of them do, from ordinary small houses, found life in large buildings strange, and to have a rota of several women looking after them added to their bewilderment on leaving home. So the Committee decided to build smaller units for 9 children on housing estates where easier contact could be made with neighbouring families and the local school in the district of each home would not be flooded with children from these homes - as was the case prior to 1950, when all homes were situated within about a mile of one another. Five such homes were built to this pattern and opened, each for 9 children, mainly of school age. Forty places were intended for the transfer of the 30 children housed at Briarcourt, Lindley, and 10 of the 13 boys in Lindley Moor. The fifth home was intended to provide extra beds still needed and reduce numbers in the overcrowded cottages in the old nursery grounds at Lindley and the remaining boys from Lindley Moor.

BUILT IN 1955.

Oakmead Nursery has now replaced the old building named Fieldhead and can accommodate 24 children under five. Children stay here from a few days to the full five years. They leave on reaching school age. It is well situated, built on two floors, on a bus route, but with a country aspect.

Fernside, opened in February, 1957, was the first of the five small homes and as each home was opened children were placed in them, as far as could be, in families, and for the first time it became possible to keep the younger child with his or her elder brothers and sisters. The house occupies the space of two semi-detached Council houses and can take 9 children of both sexes. It is situated within approximately a three minutes' walk from the Waterloo bus terminus and local schools within walking distance.

Bradley, opened in July, 1957, was the next home and is situated at the opposite side of town on the Bradley housing estate, near the shopping centre and with one new school only 100 yards away. It is run by a married couple - the man follows his own occupation.

Dryclough, opened in June, 1959, for 9 children on the Crosland Moor housing estate. This home continued the experiment previously tried out with some success at Ash Villa, Newsome (a home for 20 children now closed) of appointing a married couple in charge of the home, the husband carrying out his normal occupation outside and giving some help in his spare time.

Reinwood, opened in June, 1959, also a home for 9 school children, when opened run by two women who came as friends, from the North of England. It is important in the close confinement of a small home that two people who work together should have similarities in their mode of living and ideas of caring for children. This home, on the Oakes estate, is now the nearest to the old group of homes situated at Lindley. Some of the children go to one or other of the three new schools on the Salendine Nook campus.

Haigh Home, opened in February, 1960. Here again a married couple have been appointed to care for 9 children mainly of school age, the husband following his own occupation. This home, situated in Dalton, was the last home opened; it is a few minutes' walk from the bus route, but near enough to Ravensknowle Park for the children to play there. Due to a fall in numbers and a difficulty of recruiting suitable staff, the boys' hostel was closed, and the older boys and a few girls, for whom it had not been possible to find homes in the community, now live at Fartown Grange. Fourteen boys and girls can be accommodated here of working age up to 18 years.

Holme Lea and Church View are the only two remaining homes which were in existence before the Children Act of 1948. They were built in 1938 as two semi-detached cottages and the 10 children in each house sleep in two dormitories, one for boys and the other for girls. They are quite separately run and staffed by a Housemother to each unit. They share the time of an assistant Housemother and have full-time domestic help.

It is felt that the children, who must for a time live in such homes, are happier in these smaller homes. They settle more readily as the change from good home surroundings is not so marked. In addition to these improvements, much time is now spent attempting to board children in good homes and a number of couples are willing to take children into their own homes for quite short periods as well as those who remain indefinitely. We are indeed grateful to these people who come forward to help and become real friends of our children and ourselves. Other duties taken over by the Department are the escorting of boys and girls to approved schools and their after-care. On discharge, these young people are befriended and helped to settle in school or employment. One other duty performed is the supervision of children placed for adoption. At a later date, the supervising officer attends Court with the new parents to make an application for the granting of an Adoption Order.

MUNICIPAL CONCERTS

The Arts (Concerts) Sub-Committee is responsible for the organisation of Municipal Concerts which are held in the Town Hall. Three different series of concerts are arranged each season, as follows.

When the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra disbanded in 1955, the Council approved a proposal by the Concerts Sub-Committee that a series of Orchestral Concerts he held each season, and that well-known orchestras and conductors from both this country and abroad should be invited to appear. In the first season of this scheme, 1955/56, five such Concerts were given, but this was subsequently increased to seven per season, and up to the end of the 1966/67 season 83 Concerts had been provided. Unfortunately, for financial reasons, it has been necessary to reduce the number of concerts to six in the 1967/68 season. The Hallé Orchestra and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra between them have given 26 concerts whilst the five leading London orchestras have all appeared several times. Other British orchestras and a number of first-class foreign orchestras have also given concerts, and many of the world's leading conductors and soloists have been seen on the Town Hall platform. During the twelve years this scheme of Concerts has been in operation, a wide range of music has been performed. Most of the popular classics have been heard, and Huddersfield audiences have also had the opportunity of listening to several works which had not previously been played in the town. In addition to the purely orchestral concerts, ten solo recitals have been given, and the artistes who have appeared include the pianists Rubenstein and Ashkenazy, and violinists, Yehudi Menuhin and Milstein, as well as song recitals by Victoria de los Angeles and Irmgard Seefried. This series of Concerts has been very popular amongst music-lovers in the town and for several years it was a case of "house full" at almost every concert. All seats in the Town Hall except those behind the orchestra are available in advance on a subscription basis, and such is the demand for these season tickets that on the dates for booking many people queue from the early hours of the morning. For a number of years all these seats were usually sold within a few

51

Page 54

hours. Unfortunately, in the last two seasons the demand for season tickets has not been so great, and a considerable number of Area and Gallery seats have been unsold at the start of the season. However, the fact that these tickets, in addition to the unreserved seats behind the Orchestra, were available for each individual concert has enabled many people to attend the concert of their choice at short notice, rather than having to book for seven concerts some eight months ahead. The average attendances over the past three years have represented between 86 and 93 per cent. of the capacity of the Town Hall which cannot be considered wholly unsatisfactory.

The Council has approved the continuation of this series for a further three years and the Concerts Sub-Committee hope to maintain as high a standard of performance and as wide a range of repertoire as circumstances will permit.

MUNICIPAL CONCERTS

This series of six Concerts per season is arranged for Saturday evenings, normally on the last Saturday in each of the months September to March (excluding December). The series follows a very long tradition of "Popular Concerts" provided by the last Borough Organist, and gives the public the opportunity of hearing the magnificent organ in the Town Hall. This organ, originally built in the 1860s and erected in the Town Hall in 1880, was modernised and rebuilt in 1956, and is undoubtedly one of the finest of its type in the country.

At these Concerts, guest organists of national repute are invited to play, and are usually supported by a Choir or some other combination and by a solo artist. It is customary for young local artistes to be invited to play or sing at these Concerts, and prize-winners in the well-known Mrs. Sunderland Music Competition and students in the Music Department of the College of Technology are often given a chance of appearing.

The tradition of providing music for everyone is continued in these Concerts, and the admission charges are within the reach of every pocket. It is possible to obtain a seat in the Gallery for the sum of 3d. and the price for a seat in the Balcony is only 1s. 6d. The average attendance at this series of Concerts during the last three years has been 420 per concert which is extremely good for this type of Concert.

LUNCH HOUR CONCERTS

Six Lunch Hour Concerts are arranged each season and these take place normally on the first Tuesday in each month from October to March, inclusive. No charge is made for admission but patrons are invited to contribute towards the expenses incurred with the aid of collection boxes at the doors.

For some years now the policy of the Concerts Sub-Committee has been to invite artistes of talent from Huddersfield and surrounding districts to take part in these Concerts, and this has made the series very popular amongst those who are able to attend during their lunch hour.

The Area of the Town Hall only is used so as to make the occasions as informal as possible. The average attendance during the last three years has been just over 200 per concert which is very gratifying.

MISCELLANEOUS

During the past three years, the Concerts Sub-Committee have promoted certain additional Concerts. Three very successful Concerts entitled "Gilbert and

52

Page 55

Sullivan For All" have been given. These concerts have consisted of excerpts and scenes from the Savoy operas, provided by four past or present members of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, supported by the Huddersfield and District Gilbert and Sullivan Society Choir and William Cox-Ife, a former Assistant Musical Director of the D'Oyly Carte Company at the piano. On each occasion the Town Hall has been filled to capacity and the concerts were most enthusiastically received.

In an attempt to cater for the Jazz lovers in the town, two Jazz Concerts have been organised, the first by the Dutch Swing College Band and the second by the famous American Jazz pianist, Earl Hines. Although both Concerts were considered to be successful from the artistic point of view, unfortunately neither was well-supported, the Hall only being half full on each occasion. The Concerts Sub- Committee are considering the possibility of promoting a further such Concert in the course of the next year.

TOWN PLANNING

In the pre-war period Town Planning was under the jurisdiction of the Borough Engineer and Surveyor, who operated under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1932. In the post-war years a Town Planning section came into being under the control of the Borough Architect and Planning Officer, but in November, 1967, was established as a separate Department under the control of the Planning Officer. The Town and Country Planning Act, 1947 statutorily required all County Borough Councils and County Councils to prepare a Town Plan by 1951, and for the plan to be renewed at regular intervals. This Act also enabled Local Authorities to control development, reduce cases in which compensation was paid, and provided for the collecting of "betterment," a provision which although removed in 1952, has now been replaced under the terms of the Land Commission Act.

The Town Map of the Development Plan is to a scale of 6 inches to a mile, and shows the uses to which land should be put having regard to the estimated future population over a period of 20 years for the general benefit and convenience of the Public, and details the periods within which such major changes should be carried out. The style of Town Maps may shortly be amended by the introduction of legislation at present before Parliament.

The Town Planning Department is responsible to the Highways and Town Planning Committee for the control of the major part of all development in the County Borough in order to secure the economic use of land, good design and the conservation of areas and features of visual amenity. The Town Planning Department is also responsible for the control of advertisement sites, the preservation of woodlands, and buildings of architectural or historical interest.

Development is controlled by the need to obtain permission from the Local Authority for any major change of existing use, or the erection of buildings. Such permission can be granted, refused or granted subject to conditions, having due regard to the provisions of the Town Map. Since the coming into force of the 1947 Act, some 17,000 applications for permission have been dealt with and 1,400 applications for advertisements.

New Corporation and private enterprise housing has continued, and after a slow start in the post-war period, the Town Centre is undergoing rapid and material alteration. Many new buildings have been erected and a redevelopment scheme of 134 acres in the Town Centre is now entering the second of four phases and statutory requirements for the amendment of the Town Map to cater for the new traffic circulation pattern is under active consideration.

Ice at Blackmoorfoot Reservoir

The Waterworks Department dates back to 1827, when, by Special Act of Parliament, the Huddersfield Water Commissioners were established to supply water to the "Town and Neighbourhood of Huddersfield." In 1869 the Undertaking was acquired by the Corporation and now supplies approximately twelve million gallons of water daily for domestic and industrial purposes to some 204,000 people. The area of supply, extending to 109.2 square miles, covers the whole of the County Borough and most of the surrounding Urban Districts of Colne Valley, Kirkburton, Mirfield, Holmfirth and Meltham. The catchment area from which most of the water is collected covers over 9,000 acres, of which well over half is owned by the Corporation, and much of the rest is National Trust property. The area consists mainly of high moorland pastures, from which water flows into streams, or seeps into the ground to issue later from springs, which feed impounding reservoirs. The Corporation own eleven supply reservoirs having a total capacity of 2,426 million gallons, four in the Wessenden Valley and one each at Digley, Deerhill, Blackmoorfoot, Longwood, Holmestyes, Snape and Deanhead, as well as smaller compensation reservoirs at Longwood and Boshaw Whams. Additional supplies are obtained from certain springs near Meltham and Holmfirth, and from three boreholes. A major new supply scheme is being constructed involving a large reservoir of 1,800 million gallons capacity in the Scammonden Valley, linked by a mile and a half long tunnel, with the neighbouring Colne Valley. The M.62 Lancashire-Yorkshire motorway will cross over the top of the dam embankment. Apart from a limited quantity of very pure spring water which is made bacteriologically safe by the addition of chlorine, almost all water is chemically treated and passed through pressure sand filters at ten treatment stations from which it flows mainly by gravity through some 600 miles of pipes to thirty-six suitably sited reservoirs and tanks, and thence into supply. The Department employs a Chemist and Bacteriologist, who, with his staff, makes regular checks on the purity of the water. The Department operates a free tap re-washering service and there is always someone on duty at the Spring Street Depot in case of a burst pipe or other emergency. 55

GREENHEAD PARK This is the principal park of the town and is approximately 38% acres in extent. The park was officially opened in 1884 and money for purchase was raised by public subscription. In addition to the formal gardens, there are two bowling greens, fourteen tennis courts and two putting greens. An additional horticultural feature is the large conservatory. The park also contains a large paddling pool. Due to the close proximity of the park to the centre of the town, it is much used, especially in the summer months.

BEAUMONT PARK This park, presented to the Corporation by the Whitley Beaumont family, is situated about two miles from the centre of the town and is approximately 25% acres in extent. It is mainly in the nature of woodland area and these have been preserved as the main feature of the park, which has many viewpoints where the surrounding countryside may be seen to advantage.

RAVENSKNOWLE PARK Ravensknowle Park, in whose grounds is situated the Tolson Memorial Museum, was a gift to the Corporation in memory of two nephews of the donor killed in the First World War. This area of 11 acres in extent, at a distance of 1% miles from the town centre, is the only open space in a district which is now completely built up and with the added attraction of the Museum, is much frequented. Two bowling greens, six tennis courts and a spacious tree-lined putting green, cater for the densely populated areas surrounding. A fully equipped children's playground and recreation ground are on the south-west boundary.

NORMAN PARK Opened in 1896, this small park of some 84 acres is again the only "lung" in an area entirely built up. It is noted for the beauty of the flowering trees in Spring and at all times enhanced by the stream flowing through it. Here again is a well- equipped children's playground.

Greenhead Park Paddling Pool

Page 59

NEWSOME PARK

Approximately 4.25 acres. In the construction of this park, the sealed top of the reservoir has been grassed over and been brought into use as a play area. From this park, it is possible to obtain a wonderful view of the Pennine Range and the surrounding countryside.

FERNSIDE PARK

This park was opened in 1960. It is some 8 acres in extent and provides a useful centre of recreation and relaxation in the midst of a vast new housing estate. The layout contains four tennis courts, one bowling green and a large putting green. A large children's paddling pool and fully equipped children's playground are also provided.

LEEDS ROAD PLAYING FIELDS

These playing fields were opened in 1936 and were constructed on a marsh area. Since that date, by a method of controlled tipping, the area has been doubled and now covers some 50 acres. It contains fourteen Association Football, two Rugby and two Hockey pitches and six Cricket tables, on which over 300 matches were played last summer and a full-sized running track for athletic purposes. It also contains a bowling green, putting green, and an extensive well-equipped children's playground. The extension of the playing fields has made it necessary to increase the pavilion so as to give more dressing facilities.

BRADLEY PLAYING FIELDS

The development of this site has been recently completed. It is approx. 14 acres in extent and contains 2 football pitches, 1 rugby pitch, putting green, well- equipped children's play area and paddling pool, also ornamental features. First- class dressing accommodation has been provided for persons using the playing pitches.

Two centuries of craftsmanship

For over 250 years the name Field's of Skelmanthorpe has been synonymous with craftsmanship. In 1862, when Edwin Field founded the business that still bears his name, he inherited a tradition already established through three generations. The first Field's Rugs were woven in 1887: they were the forerunners of a range which is now unrivalled in extent and quality. Although handlooms have long since given way to the latest automatic machinery, the skill of experienced craftsmen still plays a vital part in ensuring the constant high quality for which Field's Rugs are now internationally famous.

SMALL GARDENS It has, for some time now, been the policy of the Parks Committee to plant out with trees, shrubs and seasonable flowers, the odd parcels of land which seem inevitably to occur in and about any town centre and districts. Set out with walks and seats, they are much frequented by the elderly, by shoppers and strollers and in the warm weather by outdoor lunchers. St. Peter's Gardens (by the Parish Church) and St. George's Square (in front of the Railway Station) and the Memorial Garden at Paddock Head are the largest of many such gardens.

RECREATION GROUNDS These are situated in various parts of the Borough and total some 400 acres, varying considerably in size from 4 acre to 8 acres. On nearly all of these, play- ground equipment has been erected and the larger ones contain football pitches.

The Parks, Cemeteries and Baths Committee is very much aware of the need for additional amenity and recreational facilities and subject to finances being available, they have an extensive development programme scheduled.

CEMETERIES These are situated at Edgerton, Lockwood and Almondbury and are in that order of size. A new departure for this district is the creation at Almondbury of an extension on the lawn principle, with standard memorials. This, now completed, will point the way to the more orderly and tidy Cemetery layout of the future.

CREMATORIUM The new Crematorium at Fixby, opened in 1958, is a modern styled building of local stone, standing in 14 acres of land whose natural characteristics have, in the horticultural layout, been utilised and preserved as much as possible. It is considered by many people to be one of the best in the West Riding.

ALLOTMENTS Approximately 3,000 allotments are provided by the Authority.

CIVIL DEFENCE

The Civil Defence Department was established as a result of powers given to the Corporation under the Civil Defence Act of 1948. This Act empowered Local Authorities to make certain emergency provisions in the event of a national or international emergency. This affected almost all the existing Corporation Departments and the essential services they conducted. The training of volunteer members of the Civil Defence Corps is primarily to assist the local authority to carry out certain functions, during an emergency, and in particular assisting in the manning of the Control Chain. Volunteers, who must have attained the age of 17 years, are taught a wide variety of skills such as First Aid, Rescue, Care of Homeless, Emergency Feeding, Wireless and other forms of communication, and Control of large-scale emergency conditions. Huddersfield is fortunate in that a modern purpose-built combined Control and Training Centre was completed in 1966, prior to a Government restriction on such buildings. This centrally situated Headquarters at No. 9, Manchester Road, possesses édministrative offices, classrooms, social room, garages and a protected Control entre. The latter has many modern features in its communications system, and could be self-contained for a protracted period of time if necessary.

BIRTHS, DEATHS AND MARRIAGES

The Registration Department administers the local registration service in the Huddersfield Registration District in regard to births, stillbirths, deaths and

marriages. The records which are kept at the Superintendent Registrar's Office date back to 1837.

The Register Office is situated at Ramsden House, 83, New Street, Huddersfield.

As from the 1st January, 1967, the Huddersfield Registration Scheme, 1966, came into operation, creating a unified sub-district consisting of the whole of the County Borough of Huddersfield. The new sub-district is covered by three Registrars, either of whom are able to register births, stillbirths, and deaths which occur in the town irrespective of the district or hospital in which the event took

place. The Registrars attend to register marriages solemnised at the office and certain Registered Buildings.

In addition to the Registration of Births, Stillbirths, Deaths and Marriages the department undertakes the local Census of Population.

Approximately 1,050 weddings take place in the Huddersfield Registration District annually and about a third of these are celebrated at the Register Office.

Copies from the original registers are issued by the Department and more than 14,000 certificates are issued annually.

PASSENGER TRANSPORT DEPARTMENT

The County Borough of Huddersfield has the proud distinction of being the first Municipality in Great Britain to construct and operate its own tramway system.

The Corporation promoted its own Bill in 1879 and secured powers to construct tramways under the Huddersfield Improvement Act, which received Royal Assent on the 2nd August, 1880.

The first service was between Lockwood and Fartown on the 11th January, 1883, and with the exception of the Moldgreen section, which for three years, from 1885 to 1888, was worked by horse traction, the entire system was powered by steam.

A large wooden shed in Northumberland Street was purchased in 1882 for use as a depot. Badly damaged by a gale in 1883, it became necessary to erect a new depot, which was built in Great Northern Street and occupied on the 20th J une, 1887.

With intention to operate beyond the Borough boundary a joint application to Parliament resulted in the Linthwaite Urban District Council obtaining power to construct the tramways and the Corporation power to operate them.

Early in 1893, Huddersfield became the first to introduce a system of carrying postal letter boxes on the trams. This useful public service was continued up to September, 1939.

The first electric car was put into service on the Lindley route on the 14th February, 1901, and on the same date electric cars commenced on the Outlane and the Lindley via Edgerton and Holly Bank Road route.

The last steam trams in regular service ran to Almondbury and Honley on the 17th June, 1902.

One of the unique features of the Huddersfield Tramway service was the carriage of coal in specially designed trucks, the scheme being started in September, 1904, being abandoned when the track was removed on the conversion to trolleybus operation.

In 1913, Parliamentary powers were obtained for further extensions of the tramways, including those from the Borough Boundary to West Vale and Marsden.

The Brighouse tramway extension, three-quarters of a mile of which was laid on sleepers through the fields between Netheroyd Hill Road and Bradley Lane, (now Fixby Road) was opened for traffic on 12th March, 1923.

With the 1914-1918 war intervening no developments took place until 1920, when additional powers were obtained under the Huddersfield Corporation (General Powers) Act, to run motor omnibuses along a number of defined routes outside the

Borough, and with the consent of the Ministry of Transport and the West Riding of Yorkshire County Council, along any other road in that area.

An important development took place on the 16th May, 1930, when an agreement was entered into between the London, Midland and Scottish Railway and the Corporation, whereby the railway company, now the British Railways Board purchased half of the assets and half of the motor omnibuses belonging to the Corporation, and the service of motor omnibuses has since that time been controlled by the Huddersfield Joint Omnibus Committee, comprising four duly

appointed representatives from the Corporation and four from the British Railways Board.

Following the introduction of the Road Traffic Act in 1930, a number of privately operated motor 'bus services were bought out by the Joint Committee.

In addition to the pooling of services with Hanson's Buses Ltd., in the Colne

Valley, similar arrangements were made with the Yorkshire (Woollen District) Transport Co. Ltd.

In 1931 it became apparent that the tramway system, track and most of the rolling stock was approaching the end of its useful life, and would within a few years have to be renewed completely, or replaced by some other form of transport, and it was decided to convert to trolleybuses.

The trolleybus service to Almondbury commenced over the newly- constructed highway in Somerset Road on the 4th December, 1933, and the entire conversion was completed in 1940, the last tram being to Brighouse.

Free travel on production of passes is granted to blind persons, legless and severely disabled ex-servicemen and to old people of 65 years and over (during certain hours and with resident qualification in the Borough). School children are also conveyed at reduced fares.

Following a decision of the Town Council to abandon the trolleybus system, motorbuses were purchased, the first 24 being Leyland 70 seater, forward entry type, and the first route to be changed over from trolleybus operation to motorbus operation was the West Vale in 1961. Since then there has been a gradual change over to motorbus operation, with the purchase of additional vehicles, this time of Daimler manufacture with bodies by Park Royal and East Lancashire

Coachbuilders. It is expected that the entire conversion will be completed by June, 1968.

The Great Northern Street Works and Leeds Road Garage are being re- organised and when the re-organisation is completed this should result in one of the most up-to-date Garages and Works in the North.

A Co-ordination Scheme with the Joint Omnibus Committee covering several of the Corporation and Joint Omnibus Committee routes, was brought into operation on the 6th April, 1967, which gives through running and greater benefits to the travelling public.

A system of traffic control by radio and closed circuit television has been installed, this again making for a more efficient use of vehicles and manpower, and ensuring that where traffic congestion arises swift action can be taken to clear any Town Centre queues.

In order to effect more efficient operation with the existing man-power available double deck vehicles, of the front entry type will be converted to One- man operation on off-peak periods, this innovation being the result of decisions

within the Industry and the consent given by the Ministry of Transport to this type of operation.

THE TOLSON MEMORIAL MUSEUM

Ravensknowle Hall and grounds were presented to the Corporation of Huddersfield on December 31, 1919, by the late Legh Tolson, F.S.A., for a Museum and Park, as a memorial to his two nephews, Lieuts. Robert Huntriss Tolson and James Marton Tolson, who gave their lives in the first World War. The Hall was built by John Beaumont, of Dalton, in 1860, near the site of a fifteenth century Manor House. An addition to the main building in 1931 gave two lecture rooms and increased the space available for exhibition.

The Museum is essentially a local one, and the exhibits are arranged to illustrate the physical features of the district, climate and conditions of life, both plant and animal, and the effects of these factors on the history and development of man in the district of which Huddersfield is the centre.

The first two rooms in the Museum are concerned with the origin of the rocks, climate and the development of local topography, which are primary factors in the distribution of man and in the origin and development of industry. Fossils show early forms of plant and animal life and commercially important rocks and minerals are also shown. The Botany room illustrates the characteristics of plants from bacteria to the highest forms. The Foggitt Herbarium of British plants is a collection of outstanding importance.

The following five rooms show animal life in an ascending series from Protozoa to mammals, and include an aquarium wherein fish from local waters may be seen.

A small room is devoted to the anatomy of man and includes a collection of skeletal material, dissections and models. Medical methods of the 19th century are illustrated by a collection of instruments and supporting material.

The remaining rooms are given to the history of man in the district from Upper Paleolithic times. The introductory series of tools and weapons of flint and stone are followed by the results of excavations at the Early Iron Age hill-fort of Castle Hill and the Roman Camp at Slack, near Outlane.

A feature of the Museum is a series of restorations of monuments of the early Christian period, the original fragments of which are preserved in local churches.

Subsequent rooms contain many objects of later medieval times and exhibits illustrating the life of the people to the end of the 19th century. A children's room contains a collection of 19th and early 20th century dolls and furniture. Other toys of the period are seen through reconstructed 19th century shop windows.

A reconstructed kitchen shows the furnishings which might have been found in the cottages of the domestic weavers during the early 19th century, and in the adjoining gallery a comprehensive series of early machines illustrates the various stages of cloth manufacture at that time. Items relevant to the Luddite riots in the Huddersfield district are also displayed here.

A coach-house constructed in the Park, adjoining the Museum, in 1956, contains a collection of vehicles, illustrating transport in the 19th century.

The museum publishes a series of handbooks on local historical and geographical subjects, and also maintains a Meteorological Station where readings are taken daily and which is recognised as a second-class station by the Air Ministry; such information is of value in checking weather forecasts.

Public Lectures are arranged in the Woodhead Lecture Hall from time to time, and school classes are received for talks on local history.

MARKETS AND FAIRS

As far back as the year 1272, Almondbury boasted a weekly market. When this market was discontinued is not known, but it was probably in the year 1672 when powers were granted to the Ramsden family to hold a market in Huddersfield. The Huddersfield Markets were formerly held in the open air in the Old Market Place, New Street, and also on the site of the present Market Hall in King Street, which was then called the Shambles.

In 1857 the then Local Authority - the Improvement Commissioners - took the Market tolls on lease. Subsequently, in 1876, the Corporation purchased from Sir John Ramsden all the market rights and tolls, of which he was possessed, for the sum of £14,453.

The foundation stone of the present Market Hall, which was built on the so- called "Shambles," was laid on the 5th September, 1878.

Architecturally the design of the Market Hall is geometrical or decorated Gothic throughout, a typical specimen of the Gothic revival and presents an elegant appearance, especially as far as the main front is concerned. Great improvements in the building were introduced in 1923 after a fire in the basement storey. Both floors are occupied by stalls for the sale of miscellaneous goods and all the tenancies are of a permanent nature. The main entrance is in King Street. In addition to this there are five other entrances, two into the upper floor and three into the basement, so that ingress and egress is of an easy nature.

The general market measures 166ft. long by 71ft. Sin. wide, the overall length and width of the building being 270ft. and 101ft. 6in. respectively. The market comprises 56 shops and 166 stalls for sale of miscellaneous goods, fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, flowers, provisions and general merchandise. There are on the upper and lower side of the building - that is, outside - shops for butchers, etc. On each side of the entrances, in King Street and Victoria Street, are shops for fishmongers and other trades, and above these shops are suites of offices. Glazed awnings protect the shops facing King Street, Victoria Street and Shambles Lane.

In addition to the Market Hall, the Markets and Fairs Committee have control of further undertakings, of which the following is a short description.

SLAUGHTERHOUSE

Situate in Great Northern Street the premises were built at a cost of £16,590 and were opened without formality for public use on the 14th of May, 1881. Since 1881 the premises have been modernised from time to time and in 1966 to comply with new standards laid down by the Government a major scheme of reconstruction was carried out at a cost of approximately £150,000. This modernisation included the building of a completely new slaughtering block and new lairages for sheep and pigs and the old pig slaughterhouse was converted into an amenity block consisting of a dining-room, changing rooms, showers and toilets.

There are no other slaughterhouses in the Borough except for a Horse Slaughterhouse which is licensed by the Corporation.

CATTLE MARKET

Situated in Great Northern Street, this market was opened on the same date as the above-mentioned Slaughterhouse. The sales, held on Mondays, are for all classes of animals, agricultural implements, poultry, etc., by auction and private treaty. This Market has quite reecntly been extended and modernised at a cost of approximately £27,000.

Cattle and Horse Fairs are held on the nearest Monday to the 31st March, 14th May and the 4th October annually.

WHOLESALE MARKET

Situated in Byram Street, this market dates from 1887. There are 40 stands, mostly for the sale of fish, fruit and vegetables. At present the market is used to its fullest extent. The market premises also include banana ripening rooms and facilities for refreshments.

PLEASURE FAIRS

Pleasure Fairs were formerly held at Easter, Whitsuntide, September and Christmas each year but are now held at Easter and the new Spring Bank Holiday only. The Easter Fair is held on land adjoining Red Doles Lane (formerly known as Canker Lane), Leeds Road, and the Spring Bank Holiday Fair on the Open Air Market ground at Great Northern Street. The Easter Fair is a large one and is well attended by Showmen and members of the public.

COLD STORES

This building was opened on the 5th July, 1900. The method of cooling is by cold brine circulation, the six chambers being insulated by cork slab. New plant and method of circulation was installed in 1945 which has added greatly to the efficiency of these stores.

OPEN AIR MISCELLANEOUS MARKET

This Market is of a casual nature and is held on Mondays only on land adjoining Great Northern Street. A miscellaneous class of goods are sold and the Market is well attended by traders and public alike.

SALES OUT OF MARKET The Department issue some 300 licences annually for sales out of Market.

The Markets Department also own and manage property in Shambles Lane, Queen Street, Bull and Mouth Street and Victoria Street.

HISTORY OF THE HUDDERSFIELD COUNTY BOROUGH POLICE

In 1829, as is well-known, Sir Robert Peel's Metropolitan Police Act introduced a new system of paid police in London. This met with considerable initial opposition, but was soon so firmly established that the Government passed a series of other Acts in order to establish paid police forces in the provinces.

Prior to the incorporation of the Borough. the police force for the township of Huddersfield was thirty-one men of all ranks. The boundary for the township, or the area worked was as far as West Hill, top of Cemetery Road, bottom of Hill- house Lane, Aspley, Folly Hall, and the bottom of Paddock, or an area of 734 acres with a population of 24,100. The surrounding districts to be later included in the County Borough at the incorporation were policed by the County Constabulary.

The 12th August, 1868, saw the 'birth' of the Huddersfield County Borough Police. At the first meeting of the Watch Committee on that date, the Head Constable of the 'Township of Huddersfield, Mr. Superintendent Withers, was instructed to select and train a number of men to be employed as police officers

when the County Constabulary were withdrawn from the outer districts of the Borough.

a special meeting of the Watch Committee, on the 28th August, 1868, it was resolved 'that in order to entitle the Council to the 'Government Grant' the police force be fixed at sixty-seven men, including the Inspector of Markets and

75

Page 78

Sergeant of the Fire Brigade, and that such force consist of one Superintendent, five Inspectors at 30s. per week, ten Sergeants at 25s. per week and fifty-one Constables at from 19s. to 21s. per week. The salary of the Superintendent was fixed at £220 per annum with house and allowances.

It is interesting to note that a fortnight later, on the 12th September, 1868, Superintendent Withers reported to the Committee that the force now consisted of sixty-seven men of all ranks. Presumably many of these men had transferred from the County Constabulary when the districts they had formerly policed had been incorporated in the County Borough.

The Police Station at this time was situated at the corner of Victoria Street and Bull and Mouth Street. This building later to become the offices of the Borough Weights and Measures Department, still stands and displays an inscribed stone indicating that the 'House and Prison' was erected in 1831 by public subscription.

The Police Station was wholly unsuitable and inadequate for the size of the 'new' police force. The Corporation was warned by the Home Office year by year at the Annual Police Inspection, that if they did not commence to build some suitable building the 'Government Grant' would be stopped. The grant amounted to £4,000 per annum, and this would have been a serious matter to the ratepayers of the town.

The foundation stone of the Police Station in Peel Street was laid in 1896, and the building formally opened on the 15th September, 1898, at a total cost of £12,000. The strength of the Force was 113 men of all ranks and the men's wages commenced at 24s. per week.

Soon after moving into the new Police Station, a horse ambulance was obtained which was a great improvement on the hand ambulance which had been in use at the old Police Station. In 1912, this was superseded by a motor ambulance. About this time a motor van was specially built to convey prisoners to gaol, before this, however, prisoners were removed from the Police Station to the railway station in a horse-driven vehicle known as 'Black Maria," and then by train to Wakefield or Leeds. The remainder of the journey being done by tramcar, or on foot.

1915 saw the recruitment of the first lady Police Assistant. She was appointed under the Shops Act, and in that connection her duties were to see that regulations were observed. Her other duties included attention to cases of indecent assault on females. A second lady assistant was appointed in 1918.

There had been Special Constables in Huddersfield long before a 'paid' police force was established. In May, 1918, the new Chief Constable, Captain J. W. Moore, formed a new Special Constabulary Force of 260 men under the leadership of A. Brook Hirst. This force rendered signal service to the regular force, and on Christmas Day of that year successfully took over the patrolling of the whole of the Borough, which enabled the regular members of the Force to spend the greater part of the day with their families. The Special Constabulary were demobilised on the 14th October, 1919, each member being presented with an illuminated testimonial.

During the war years, 1914-1918, fifty-three members of the Force served in the armed forces, seven of whom were killed.

In May, 1926, as a result of the General Strike, twenty-one First Police Reserves, and 246 Special Constables were sworn in and performed duty with great restraint. The force was re-organised in 1930, when thirty-seven Police Boxes were erected, and a Mobile Department formed. Three motor-cycle combinations were purchased for Road Traffic Patrols. The same year saw the introduction of the first sets of automatic traffic signals.

In 1934, the Mobile Department consisted of one prison van, two Rolls- Royce ambulances, one Morris Oxford Tourer, two Vauxhall saloons, two Austin saloons and one motor-cycle combination.

In 1939, the strength of the Force was increased to 152, and the Force was reinforced by the recruitment of sixty-two Police War Reserves and seventeen First Police Reserves, together with 300 Special Constables. Forty-two members of the regular Force served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces, three of whom were killed on active service. In 1942, a Woman's Auxiliary Police Corps was formed with a strength of sixteen to compensate for the deficiency in strength. When this force

was disbanded in 1946, three regular Policewomen were appointed for the first time in Huddersfield.

Between 1949 and 1959, 106 Police Houses, for occupation by members of the Force were built by the Police Authority. Between 1962 and 1963, six Police Section Stations were built and the use of thirty wooden Police Boxes discontinued.

In 1959, male Cadets were recruited to the Force, and in 1966, girl Cadets were introduced. The use of Police Dogs in the Force was introduced early in 1966.

In 1965 work commenced on the construction of the new Police Headquarters and Law Courts. The Police Headquarters were occupied in October 1967, and the Law Courts were brought into use early in 1968.

FIRE BRIGADE

The provisions of the Fire Services Act of 1947 require the Council to make efficient arrangements for the extinction of fires and for rendering advice with regard to fire precautions and fire safety.

In order to conform to these requirements, a Fire Brigade with a total strength of 82 uniformed men and 3 administrative women is employed and operates from a modern Fire Station in Upperhead Row, being equipped with an up-to-date fleet of fire appliances, including pumps, pump escapes, emergency tender, salvage tender, foam tender and turntable ladder.

The Brigade deals with an average of about 800 fires per year, and, additionally, responds to about 100 calls for assistance in other cases of emergencies and public misfortune, e.g. persons trapped after vehicular and other accidents, animals trapped in precarious positions, making safe property damaged by high winds, storms or floods and endangering the public, etc.

The Brigade has responsibilities with regard to precautions against fire under the Parliamentary Acts controlling factories, offices, shops, railway premises, cinemas, theatres, places of public entertainment, clubs, public houses, hospitals, schools, institutions, etc., and a staff of specialist Fire Prevention Officers is fully employed at all times in regularly inspecting premises to ensure the safety of the occupants in the event of fire occurring at the premises.

ELECTRICITY

Electricity is distributed by the Yorkshire Electricity Board, and the Borough of Huddersfield is included in the Huddersfield Area of the Board which extends over 320 square miles and serves a population of approximately half a million. The Huddersfield Shop is situated in Market Street, where can be seen a comprehensive display of modern domestic appliances. Trained staff are available to give advice on all aspects of electrical equipment and supply.

Throughout the District, electricity is universally used in domestic, commercial and industrial premises and for many and varied outside applications, as its cleanliness and convenience cannot be surpassed.

INSTALLATION AND SERVICE

A comprehensive installation contracting, plant and apparatus maintenance and general service department operates throughout the area, giving a full service to all authorities and classes of consumers. The department is staffed by qualified engineers and skilled workmen. Advice is freely given and all work is carried out to relevant regulations and in accordance with good practice. Detailed specifications, layouts and tenders are submitted for any type of electrical installation, engineering projects and for repair work.

Close liaison is maintained with the contracting industry and other organisations such as local Home Safety Committees. A maintenance scheme is operated for specified domestic apparatus and an emergency service is readily available to consumers from 7.30 a.m. to 10.30 p.m. at all times including holiday periods by telephoning Huddersfield 54311.

AGRICULTURE AND HORTICULTURE

Trained staff are available to give expert advice on all electrical matters concerned with both agriculture and horticulture backed up by the wealth of information available at both the Board's Headquarters and the Electricity Council. Very much appreciated throughout the Area are the talks given on request to Young Farmers' Clubs, National Farmers' Union and Horticultural Societies, etc.

In addition to giving advice, the Board act as suppliers and contractors for all types of electrical appliances used on the farm and nurseries from Barn Hay Drying equipment, milking machines, etc., to soil warming cables and other forms of greenhouse heating and propagation.

COMMERCIAL CATERING To assist the Commercial Caterer the Board not only promote the sale of equipment suitable for the "Back Bar" to a large bakery, but readily give advice to all whether it be Hotelier, Snack Bar Proprietor or Manager of a large works canteen. Lectures and demonstrations are periodically held at which new equipment is introduced and to these personal invitations are sent to those in the trade. Recently there has been an increase in the use of electricity for large scale baking,

refrigeration, large scale fish frying and dish-washing, among many other applications.

COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL SPACE HEATING AND WATER HEATING Electricity is recognised as a refined and efficient fuel particularly suitable for space and water heating purposes. By virtue of the ease by which entirely automatic control is achieved and the advantages electric systems offer by way of labour saving, space saving, and low installation costs with reduced building costs due to absence of flues and chimneys,. electricity is being used to an ever increasing extent. For these reasons, Architects and Design Engineers for large scale building projects and town centre developments often specify electric floor warning for building heating This system has the added advantage that it does not require pipes or radiators thereby giving freedom of interior layout and enhanced environmental working conditions. The fine new Civic Centre is heated by electric floor warming.

PROCESS AND INDUSTRIAL HEATING The Industrial Advisory Service of 'YEB' is available to all industrialists including the practical services of trained engineers who can be called upon to give assistance and help in the application and utilization of electricity for all purposes. The service is backed by the comprehensive information bureau and the specialist engineers' services maintained and staffed by the E.D.A. Division of the Electricity Council. Experimental work and prototype plant projects can be carried out in conjunction with the industrialist in the pursuit of increased productivity and improved quality of the product. Advice on tariffs, load control and instrumentation is also freely available, together with an appreciation of the many new techniques which can often be applied to advantage and provide a solution to manufacturing problems. A great deal of help and assistance has already been given. 'YEB' is anxious to ensure that the fullest use of their comprehensive Industrial Advisory Service is made by the manufacturers and industrialists in the Area. A call to Huddersfield Area Offices, Brian Street, Lindley, Huddersfield, Telephone No. 54747 is all that is necessary to get to know the advantages which electricity in industry can give.

HOUSEHOLD EQUIPMENT Most housewives are aware of the advantages of electrical equipment in the home, and by using it to its fullest extent it makes work so much easier and provides more time for leisure, only tested and proved appliances being sold throughout the Board's Service Centres. Central heating is now essential in every home and for new property, underfloor heating is the best and cheapest to instal. Corporation flats recently erected in the Borough are heated by this method. For existing property, electric storage radiators are the modern choice, as they can be tailored to suit both home and pocket. Electric central heating is economical to run as it uses electricity at cheap off-peak rates - that is almost half-price. No expensive structural work is necessary and two heaters can be completely installed for less than £50.

The manufacture and distribution of gas and coke throughout the County Borough of Huddersfield is carried out by the North Eastern Gas Board, whose principal offices and showrooms are situated in modern premises in High Street.

DOMESTIC USAGE

The use of gas in houses, bungalows and flats is increasing year by year. Apart from the traditional gas cooker which is still favoured by the majority of householders, it has been realised in recent years that gas offers an effective and economical service for space heating, hot water and refrigeration.

The modern radiant convector gas fire is handsome in appearance and provides instant heat distributed to every part of the room. The economical two- part tariff means that using one of these fires is no dearer than burning coal in an old-fashioned grate. No longer is the installation of gas fires confined to the bedroom or to a living-room which is used only occasionally. Today hundreds of fires are being sold every month to provide space heating in the main living-room of the dwelling.

In the field of central heating, gas provides an efficient and entirely labour- free service, either by means of ducted warm air (which is mainly suitable for new houses) or by traditional-type radiators heated from a gas-fired boiler.

A complete advisory and design service is available with labour-free maintenance for the first twelve months, after which attractive contract maintenance terms can be offered. Hire purchase or personal loan schemes can be taken advantage of in most cases.

COMMERCIAL USAGE

A great majority of professional cooks, canteen managers, etc., still prefer the flexibility and ease of control which is obtained with the visible gas flame. A catering specialist is available on our staff for consultation and advice on all problems connected with commercial and canteen kitchen planning of any size. Bulk water heating for commercial premises is also an attractive proposition with gas.

INDUSTRIAL USAGE

There is a widespread employment of gas in industry in the Huddersfield area where the flexibility of control and precision of application usually produce the lowest fuel cost in the manufacture of many local products. The following are some of these applications:

Liquid Heating Gas is extensively used for heating all kinds of liquids in industry today, including caustic liquors, many acids, phosphates for etching and rust inhibition, oils, fats, waxes and aqueous solutions. There are many alternative ways in which tanks or vats can be heated, both externally and by submerged combustion within the solution. A new development now being explored is pulsating combustion for rapid heat input through small-bore immersion tubing.

Hot Air

Fan-assisted hot air is the anwer to many drying and curing problems as these often require comparatively low temperatures where radiation is not the best means of heat transfer. Temperatures up to 600deg. F. Are easily attained and accurately controlled.

85

Page 88

Space Heating

Large-scale space heating is available in many forms to suit the varying requirements of temperature, humidity and ventilation. The choice can vary between conventional pipes and radiators, fanned warm air, balanced flue radiators or radiant panel heaters. The last named are particularly useful in high buildings with low thermal capacity and for heating isolated areas in workshops.

Automatic operation by clock and/or thermostatic control is available with most of these systems and, of course, there is no labour cost for stoking or ash removal.

Heat Treatment of Metals

In this field gas plays an important part, both as a fuel and as a source of protective atmospheres. Modern developments include spark ignition and ultra- violet or infra-red flame sensing for combustion protection. Push-button and full programme control of heating cycles is available.

Research

The Gas Industry promotes research at a central establishment near Birmingham and there is also a local Industrial Development Centre at Bradford. Facilities are available for the investigation of all types of heating problems which customers may encounter and much original work has already been translated into commercial applications. This service is entirely free.

GLOGAS

Bottled gas under the proprietary name, "Glogas," can now be obtained for all forms of application where town gas supplies are not available and a regular delivery service to all districts is operating.

Huddersfield's reputation as a centre of manufacture of quality goods is an enviable one. Wool textiles, engineering and chemicals are the three principal industries of the town, but the county borough's welfare is by no means dependent upon the prosperity of them. There are hundreds of minor trades and industries in the town ranging from pickle manufacturing to the production of footballs, which, in the aggregate, afford employment for thousands of Huddersfield people. Yet it is true to say that a major slump in any of the three principal industries - and particularly wool textiles - would be a vitally serious matter to the town. The repercussions would be felt by several ancillary industries and, of course, by the retail tradesmen. The growth of Huddersfield in the last 100 years as a leading municipality has been interwoven with the town's expanding influence as an industrial centre. A number of industrial firms in the town are proud of the fact that they, too, have been in existence 100 years or more. They have flourished and helped to increase the town's prestige not only in this country but in many overseas' nations as well. To Huddersfield's municipal life local industry has made noteworthy contributions. During the past 100 yz2ars some of the town's most energetic and far-sighted members of the Town Council have been men prominent in local industry - often heads of thriving Huddersfield businesses or employees whose ability at organisation and concern for their fellow workers has resulted in them playing a leading part at local level in the trade union movement. Not surprisingly, therefore, Huddersfield's industrial life generally feels no small measure of pride in the fact that the county borough is celebrating its centenary. Whatever the sphere of manufacture, the town has earned a reputation for the high quality of its goods. In this sense it may be said that the town's industry is a reflection of Huddersfield generally, for about this busy manufacturing centre there is an air that only the best will suffice.

Its shops and its factories sell and produce goods which are of the best -a state of affairs of which Huddersfield folk are proud. This insistence upon quality is to be found to a marked degree in Huddersfield's famous worsted cloth industry. Throughout the world the fine worsted suitings manufactured in the town have won an unsurpassed reputation for quality and workmanship of the highest order. Wherever there are well-dressed men, the smartest will be clad in suits made from worsted cloth manufactured in Huddersfield. Kings, princes and the world's wealthiest men, able to pay for the very best, wear suits of Huddersfield worsteds. Because of this, a very special trade has been built up by the town's fine worsted manufacturers. But the buyers of Huddersfield cloth are by no means confined to Savile Row or the best tailoring concerns in the provinces. Huddersfield worsteds are exported to every part of the world, and as a consequence, the industry is playing a vital role in the country's national economy - a factor which has been of the greatest importance ever since the end of the Second World War, when Britain has been striving to export more and more of her goods.

Do not think that Huddersfield worsteds sell themselves. While their quality is unchallenged, competition has never been keener, and it is only by the indefatigable efforts of mill managements that overseas markets have been maintained and new ones established. The executive who sits in his office chair waiting for orders to roll in finds the going hard. This is not the practice adopted by Huddersfield manufacturers. Very often directors themselves make frequent visits overseas, keeping contact with customers and actually finding out for themselves the sort of cloths which the people of a particular country want and are likely to wear next season. And all the while, salesmen and agents are moving about overseas furthering the markets of Huddersfield's firms. Worsted manufacturers by no means make up the entire wool textile activity in the town. Woollen cloths, fancy fabrics for ladies' wear, yarn spinning, dyeing and finishing and an appreciable number of separate trades and industries allied to textiles occupy the working hours of many Huddersfield people. The manufacture of cloths other than worsteds is particularly important. Great strides have been made in recent years by certain firms concentrating on the production of fabrics for women's wear.

Ingenuity of design and the skilful use of colour play major parts in the success of these concerns. Constantly they have to keep abreast with fashion and change. Naturally, with an industry as old as wool textiles, there is a tendency to think that manufacture has changed little throughout the years - an impression often heightened by the fact that many of the mills where manufacture is carried out are smoke-begrimed and not very attractive buildings from the exterior.

But it would be wrong to think that the mode of manufacture has not moved with the times. Manufacturers, at considerable capital expense, have installed modern machinery, and aided by the experience of different wool textile organisations, have introduced work-study schemes and scientific research to produce their cloths with the greatest efficiency.

The past, however, just cannot be dismissed. There is a warmth and a romance about the wool textile industry of the Huddersfield district. For centuries the district has been a cloth-producing area. First it was carried out in the home. Even today memories of home weaving are revived by the several-storied houses, with many glass windows, still to be seen at the fringe of the Pennine moors on the outskirts of the town. The windows let in the light, so important in those days to weavers.

From their homes in the little villages around Huddersfield - many of which are now incorporated in the county borough as residential suburbs - the old hand-loom weavers brought their cloth to market on pack-horses. Originally it was to Almondbury, one of Huddersfield's oldest and prettiest districts, because seven centuries ago Almondbury had a more important market than Huddersfield! It was not until 1671 that a licence was obtained to hold a weekly market in Huddersfield, but very soon Huddersfield superseded Almondbury as the cloth centre for the district. Three centuries ago much of the trade used to be conducted around Huddersfield Parish Church with the gravestones of the churchyard used as tables for the display of cloths. The introduction of machinery on a substantial scale to the textile industry brought with it accompanying strife and revolt. Huddersfield was not free from the disturbances of the "industrial revolution" and the famous Luddite uprisings during the early years of the nineteenth century were the cause of immense distress to the industry and its works. The name of Richard Oastler of Huddersfield, who did so much to prevent the exploitation of children in the new factories, is proudly remembered today. With vigour he campaigned for legislation to put an end to child labour in factories and although he personally suffered much in the cause he so courageously took up, in the end the principles for which he fought were admitted by Parliament to be right and proper. Plays and novels have been written around the wool textile industry. Often the mill owners have been portrayed as hard, grasping employers with little or no thought for anybody - men with the sole intent of making "brass." That such men have controlled some mills of this area may be true, but it is easy also for an unbalanced picture to be obtained of the industry. Certainly, such a background should be obliterated from the scene today. Many of the mills in the town are still family concerns with proud records of achievements in the past. But they are getting fewer. As in so many industries, it has become increasingly difficult during recent years for such businesses to keep abreast with the exacting requirements of modern commerce. Heavy capital expenditure on new machinery and equipment and death duties when a member of the family dies have left their toll. More and more mills today are part of textile combines. Some may regret this but it is really inevitable in view of the times, and the years ahead may well bring about more "take-overs" to the big captains of industry. The chemical industry has a less fascinating background. But its importance to Huddersfield is considerable. Essentially, it is a modern industry and its roots with the town certainly can claim no long link with the past, as is the case with wool textiles. Yet the labour force employed in chemicals in Huddersfield is a large one and for years there has been a demand for more and more labour which the district has been unable to supply.

91

Large numbers travel daily to Huddersfield from the surrounding Heavy Woollen District and Spen Valley area to work in the town's chemical factories. For that matter, the wool textile industry is also responsible for an appreciable import of labour. In textiles it is chiefly women operatives who travel daily from South Yorkshire to Huddersfield to work in the mills. So valuable is this labour to employers that special motor coaches transport the girls to and from their homes daily. Two firms, Imperial Chemical Industries Ltd., with a Dyestuffs Division works at Leeds Road, and L. B. Holliday and Co. Ltd., of Deighton, employ the greatest proportion of chemical industry employees. There are other chemical works, but these two companies absorb the most. Between them they supply dyes and colour matters for practically every industry, so wide is the range of their manufacture. ICI manufacture several products which are the patent of their group, and, of course, the high reputation which they have built up for quality and reliability needs no emphasis. It fits perfectly into the picture drawn of Huddersfield as a centre for the production of top-grade goods - and it applies to every type of principal manufacture in the county borough. In the field of engineering, the town is achieving growing importance. One interesting feature is that unlike some of Britain's major engineering centres its products are not confined to one particular range. From small precision tools, calling for immense accuracy, up to large engineering equipment, also requiring skill of the highest order, and all manner of products in between . . . all have works producing them in the town. One of the best-known names in British industry today is that of David Brown, and the great David Brown empire had its birth in Huddersfield. The head of the David Brown Organisation, with ramifications throughout the world, is Sir David Brown. grandson of the founder. It was in 1860 that the first Mr. David Brown started a small gear-pattern- making works in East Parade, now named Queensgate and part of Huddersfield's fine new ring road for Lancashire traffic. There was nothing in that beginning which gave a hint of the vast progress which the next 100 and more years would see. Mr. Brown had only two employees when he began - a far cry from the thousands on the payrolls of the David Brown Organisation, and its subsidiary companies, at the present time. Another Huddersfield engineering company which like Brown's still has members of the founder's family in control, is that of Brook Motors Ltd., producers of electric motors to be found in industrial and commercial concerns in all parts of ths world. The company was founded by the late Mr. Ernest Brook, a native of Pontefract, who came to Huddersfield in 1901 to become manager of a firm of electrical engineers. He saw a great future in alternating current, so much so that he left his employer's concern to start his own business to make AC motors. He had two

92

Page 95

helpers and very soon his business was meeting with such success that his premises became inadequate. So expansion took place. From those beginnings at the start of the century, Brook Motors has grown at a remarkable rate. Undoubtedly, much of the progress was due to the vigorous energy and drive of Mr. Brook himself who, like all successful leaders, had the capacity to instil into his employees the enthusiasm which he himself brought to his work. Yet another Huddersfield engineering concern with a history of more than a century behind it is that of Thomas Broadbent and Sons Ltd. While in latter years this company has built up a world-wide reputation as manufacturers of hydro- extractors and sugar centrifugals, they have in the past been responsible for many interesting engineering projects. For instance, they supplied the operating gear for the Tees road bridge at Middlesbrough, which at the time of its erection was the largest of its kind in the world. In two world wars, Huddersfield engineering factories played a valuable part in helping the nation's war effort. They did so in several ways by the products and parts which they were called upon to manufacture. Broadbent's felt particularly proud of their varied contribution during the last war. Their manufactures then included watertight doors for corvettes and submarines (X craft) which were built in a secret bay at the works.

At least two other Huddersfield engineering concerns in their own special fields throughout the world have established the highest reputations. Both are more than 100 years old. Joseph Hopkinson, the founder of Hopkinsons Ltd., the valve manufacturers, of Britannia Works, started the concern in 1843 in a very small way to produce engineering fittings and particularly steam engine and boiler accessories.

During most of the time that Hopkinsons have been expanding and establishing their enviable reputation as manufacturers of valves and gauges, so likewise there has been a constant growth of W. C. Holmes and Co. Ltd., of Turnbridge. This company was founded by Mr. William Cartwright Holmes in 1850 when the enterprising Mr. Holmes was a young man of twenty-three. For the major portion of his life, Holmes's have been gas industry engineers. The nationalisation of the gas industry in 1949 resulted in a big upheaval in that industry, and the consequence has been that during more recent years the company has concentrated less upon the production of gas industry equipment and more upon plant for other industrial purposes.

The town has scores of other engineering companies which today are less in size than those whose early history has been mentioned. Some have been founded in recent years and it may be that in a short space of time they too may join the ranks of the "big companies."

There is plenty of drive and initiative among the businessmen of Huddersfield, and difficult though the present days are for industry and commerce, the challenge is being met. One of the biggest problems for industry at the moment is finding suitable sites for factories and room for factory expansion. Unlike some towns, there is very, very little available space for industry within close proximity to the centre of the town. As one would imagine in such a thriving centre, there are active trade associations and societies in the town which watch the interests of those engaged in industry. One of the most embracing is the Huddersfield and Spen Valley Chamber of Commerce, in whose membership is to be found quite a good cross-section of the local industry. The Chamber is an influential body which has been responsible for helping

local industry in many ways and often it has found it necessary to present the case for some section of local industry at the very highest levels.

Two recent important developments of the Chamber of Commerce have been the decision of the hitherto separate Spen Valley Chamber of Commerce to join forces with the Huddersfield Chamber, and the acquisition by the Chamber of new premises - Commerce House, Fitzwilliam Street, which have proved admirable headquarters for an organisation whose expansion has been rapid during recent years. Now, under the title of the Huddersfield and Spen Valley Incorporated Chamber of Commerce, the interests of Huddersfield district firms are being looked after alongside those of Spen Valley industrialists. The Chamber's Council - the Executive Committee responsible for the general running of the Chamber - has been enlarged from the days when the Chamber catered only for the affairs of businessmen in the Huddersfield district.

Representatives of firms in the busy Spen Valley area are now members of the Chamber's Council. None of the thoroughness and useful service which has been rendered over many years past has been lost by this happy fusion of interests with Spen Valley members.

The Junior Chamber of Commerce movement is one which has come very much to the fore of business interests during recent years and Huddersfield is proud of the enterprise and energy which has been displayed by the local Junior Chamber of Commerce.

In these days of intense business pressure, responsibility in industry has often to be delegated to younger men than was the case half a centry ago. It is from the younger Executives of local business that the Junior Chamber of Commerce has drawn its members and both by assistance to the senior Chamber

of Commerce and initiative in new spheres, the Junior Chamber members have stamped their mark on the affairs of the town and district. Exhibitions devoted to local industry and to careers for young people in local factories, workshop and offices, have been extremely well received. They have proved particularly useful to young people, both in general education, and as a means of helping them making up their minds in which avenue of industry they will one day earn their livelihood. The Junior Chamber of Commerce is also responsible for organising the annual "Miss Huddersfield Textiles" competition. This is a contest, conducted with a great deal of enthusiasm by local textile firms, to find an attractive girl to represent the town's textile industry for twelve months. Mills, both large and small, enter their own nominees, and, ultimately, from what has invariably proved to be a large number of contestants for the title, one girl has been chosen for the honour. During the twelve months of her "reign" she become's Huddersfield's ambassadress for the textile industry and takes her place in this capacity at functions both in Huddersfield and further afield. Apart from the publicity which textiles enjoy as a result of this competition, there is no doubt that the annual event arouses a good deal of interest among all local textile operatives. The trade unions are no less well organised and in most industries there is and has been a happy relationship between employees and management. This applies particularly to the wool textile industry, which has been free of a major work stoppage for many years - a factor in which both sides of industry can take the greatest credit. Today the call throughout industry is for technicians and operatives possessing the highest possible qualifications for their particular jobs. In this way efficiency is stepped up. With competition intensely keen in other countries, never has the need been greater for seeking to ensure that young people entering industry have the opportunity for training which will give them every chance to use their abilities to the full.

Huddersfield is singularly fortunate in this respect. It possesses an excellent college of technology, recently enlarged by the addition of fine modern buildings with lecture theatres, laboratories and equipment which offer students first-rate opportunities for advancing their technical knowledge while studying under extremely pleasant surroundings. Courses are available which present apprentices and young people in the principal industries with expert training. Some of these are part-time day release courses whereby the employers release their young employees during what is normally working-tim2 in order to attend classes at the College of Technology.

It now appears likely that the day is fast approaching when the college will achieve "polytechnic" status. But, whatever the title, there is not the slightest doubt that, out of what was formerly the Huddersfield Technical College, young people are able to enjoy a far-reaching range of tuition in speciality subjects which present them with excellent qualifications to make advancements in their respective careers.

There is very close liaison between the chief industries of the district and the college authorities so that there is a first-class practical application of the courses with the requirements of local industry. The Ramsden Technical College is another educational institution which gives admirable facilities for the young student. The implementation of the Industrial Training Act by so many sections of industry is making the contribution which these colleges make to the training of apprentices all the more important. Happily, industry and the colleges have been quick to co-operate to provide young people with training which has received the full approval of authorities at national level.

d

Page 100

Sight must not be lost of the importance to industry of one-day schools and conferences which are often held at the College of Technology in co-operation with trade organisations. Some of the subjects discussed deal with the latest technical scientific developments in a particular industry and the value which those within industry place upon these seminars is inducated by the extraordinarily large attendances which have been obtained at many of them in spite of the fact that it has meant to the participants the sacrifice of one or more days to be present. Huddersfield is proud of the fact that for some time it has enjoyed one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the whole of the country. This is indicative of the enterprise and efficiency of its industral leaders in seeing to it that even in difficult days there is work for the townspeople. With a flourishing industrial atmosphere goes prosperity for the town's tradesmen. Everything in fact revolves around industry. But with the workpeople taking home comfortably filled pay packets it follows that they have money to spend in the shops. Here, Huddersfield people are fortunate. The town is well blessed with some excellent shops, from large walk-round stores and modern supermarkets to long- established family traders. Like so many other Northern towns and cities big changes are taking place in redevelopment in the town centre. Before long there will be more and still newer shops to cater for the growing population. Indeed Huddersfield's shops serve not only the citizens of the town, but also the scores of villages in the surrounding Colne and Holme Valleys besides attracting many residents for shopping purposes from the adjoining Heavy Woollen District and Spen Valley areas.

The firm specialises in the manufacture and merchanting of all types of textile wastes for re-use by spinners, manufacturers and allied trades, both home and export. JOHN SUTCLIFFE, founder of the firm and grandfather of the present chairman, set up business as a Waste Merchant at premises in Market Street in the early 1850's. Prior to this he wove his own cloth at his home in Stainland, carrying the pieces to the Huddersfield Cloth Hall to sell. In 1860 he decided to buy machinery for the manufacture of Shoddy, so he moved to larger premises in Albion Street, taking delivery of his first Garnett machine in 1861. A further move became necessary for expansion so The Fitzwilliam Street Tobacco Mill - known as Richmond Mills, after Richmond, Virgina - was bought. Snuff was also ground on the premises and the factory still has bars on the lower windows and the one door is reinforced with an iron plate. Three sons joined the business between 1874 and 1885, Eli, William Henry and Fred, but in 1900, due to their father's retirement from active participation, the firm was incorporated under the chairmanship of Eli. In 1932, following the death of Fred, John E. Sutcliffe and John S. Butterworth (nephew) joined the board and in 1936, on Eli's death, William Henry became chairman. After his death in 1950, John E. Sutcliffe became chairman and Tom Walker, the company secretary, became a director, J. David Sutcliffe joining the board in 1957 - great-grandson of the founder. It became clear during the next three years that the firm would have to extend its activities and so, in 1962, an amalgamation took place. John Sutcliffe and Sons took over Hamilton, Phillips and Co. Ltd., and the Mitchell Textile Waste Co. Ltd., and acquired F. H. Drabble and Sons Ltd., Waste businesses and Machell Bros., who had decide to close down. This resulted in J. R. Phillips and T. D. Mitchell joining the board of directors, later joined by C. Akeroyd, as Assistant Secretary.

JOSEPH BEAUMONT JNR. LTD.

In 1506 Arthur Kaye, of Woodsome Hall in Almondbury, inherited the Manors of Farnley Tyas and Slaithwaite, and shortly afterwards built "walk mylns at Slaghtwaite." Since that date the site of the present Colne Mills has been continuously occupied in processing woollen cloth; originally fulling only, but in the late eighteenth century carding was added, then subsequently spinning, and from the early nineteenth century the whole of the processes of cloth making from raw fibre to finished cloth has been carried on here. In 1916 a large carding and spinning shed was built over the top of the mill dam. By this time the water wheel, though still in situ, was disused and for many years the mill had been driven by a fine steam engine. This in turn gave way to electric power in 1954, and in 1959 the dam was drained off, excavated under the running machinery, and a large basement warehouse was constructed. Several feet lower in the silt than the pen-trough which had carried the water to the wheel referred to above, was found another pen-trough leading to a well-built arched tunnel 5ft. high but entirely choked with silt. There can be little doubt that here was the work of Arthur Kaye. Above and around it cloth-making had gone on for 450 years. In 1965 Clough House Mills were acquired, almost doubling the production capacity. Both mills are engaged on the production of fancy fashion tweeds for ladies' and kiddies' wear, enough cloth for some 6,000 garments being made from start to finish each week.

Edwin Field

EDWIN FIELD & SONS LTD.

At Skelmanthorpe the name Field has inspired local craftsmen for over 250 years. Just as the cloth made by Thomas fhield (sic) in 1715 was eagerly sought by the discerning gentry of the time, so, through a world of changing tastes, a wide range of textiles including "Welsh Flannels," Silk Skirtings, Mohair Table Covers, and, since the end of 19th century, Mohair Floor Rugs and Mats has found an eager market. In 1862 Edwin Field founded the well-known business which bears his name, following a tradition established by his father, grandfather and great- grandfather, who were all textile manufacturers in Skelmanthorpe. Young Edwin, only 27 years of age, started business on his own account on the site of the present works, Tentercroft Mills. Edwin Field manufactured a wide variety of specialised textiles, but a regular line for many years was "Welsh Flannel" used for shirting material for South Wales miners. He eventually took into partnership his two sons, John

Page 107

Thomas Field and Charles Edwin Field. The latter was quick to sense the demand for any novelty and in 1887 introduced floor rugs, mats and table covers with mohair pile, probably the first use of mohair for loose furnishings and certainly its first use for floor rugs.

Edwin Field died in 1901 and eleven years later Charles Edwin Field became sole proprietor on the retirement of his brother. During the next thirty years production became more and more concentrated on floor rugs and mats, to the gradual exclusion of other types of textiles. Thus the name Edwin Field Sons Ltd. has become synonymous with floor rugs and mats of the highest quality and craftsmanship; this reputation has spread not only throughout the length and breadth of the British Isles but also to most major countries and many smaller ones in all parts of the world.

As mohair played such an important part in the development of these fine rugs, it is very fitting that the Company should have adopted for its products the trade mark "Goat's Head" - a trade mark so well known today.

The craftsmen of Tentercroft Mills have always been especially proud of their Skelmet rug, long renowned as the most beautiful, most luxurious rug it is possible to buy, with deep rich pile of pure mohair.

Development of new ideas has always been an important part of Field's activities and continual experiment and research over the years have produced a wide variety of finishes and types of pile to interest and delight the housewife, also brighter, fresher colours to add charm to her home. In recent years developments have been of a more fundamental nature, as the use of other fibres for rugmaking has presented interesting new possibilities.

New man-made fibres possess valuable qualities which complement the traditional materials, and a combination of the new with the old can often give results superior to either alone.

After more than a Century the Company is still privately owned and controlled by the direct descendants of the founder Edwin Field, whose great- grandson, Richard Edwin Field, is the present Managing Director. Amongst the Company's employees are some who also have a similarly long family connection, successive generations having worked for a whole lifetime at Tentercroft Mills.

In this age of large and increasingly impersonal commercial enterprises Edwin Field & Sons Ltd. represents by contrast the ideal of the family firm which, by combining a fine tradition with a progressive approach, keeps its independent place in a competitive business world.

WM. ODDY & COMPANY LIMITED

Founded about 100 years ago and incorporated as a limited company in 1920, the Company employs approximately 350 people in the manufacture of Woollen and Worsted Cloths for men's suitings and high quality ladies' wear, which are sold both at Home and abroad.

Situated in a pleasant, almost rural setting alongside the River Holme, and yet barely two miles from the town centre, the Company's premises are appropriately named Park Valley Mills.

The Company has, for many years, followed the enlightened policy of progressive plant replacement and, in addition to modern weaving and yarn processing departments, is also equipped with up-to-date dyeing and finishing plants which include the latest fully automatic machinery for yarn dyeing.

The management, sales and design team, which combines youthful enthusiasm with mature experience, is forward looking and fully aware of the need for the constant re-appraisal of ideas, techniques and designs in order to keep abreast of current developments and fashion trends and to consolidate its position in today's highly competitive Markets.

To meet the constant demand for skilled operatives, the Company has its own established Mending School and employs trained instructors in all other production departments. Young employees are also encouraged to extend their training by external courses of study and many are released for daytime tuition at the local Technical Colleges.

Well known throughout the trade, Wm. Oddy and Co. Ltd. is a member of the Parkland Group of Companies.

JAMES DYSON & SONS LTD.

It's almost a certainty you can see the dyeing of James Dyson and Sons Ltd. all over the world, for the materials processed at their Hoyle Ing Headquarters, near Linthwaite, eventually find their way into practically all types of fabrics for the clothing, carpet and upholstery industries (men's quality suitings, speciality fancy ladies' cloths, multicoloured tufted and traditional carpets, lightweight carpets for airliners, and durable, long-lasting carpets for liners are just a few examples).

This is not surprising, for James Dyson and Sons Ltd. have been colourists at Hoyle Ing since 1860. During that time they have been asked to dye practically everything; most frequent requests, however, are colours for wool, colours for cotton and colours for the many newer synthetic fibres. To meet these demands they have a permanent laboratory staff employed for research into methods of application and the modern matching processes that will reproduce the customers' requirements in bulk. Dyers and dyeware manufacturers alike have found it necessary to be alert to the hazards of the industry, where the demand for standardised fastnesses to light and washing were never more important than at the present time.

This year they are carrying out an extensive expansion programme that will bring a faster and more efficient service to their customers. New warehouses are being erected, to ensure a quicker turn-round, and new modern laboratories are in operation to cater for the ever-increasing demands for faster dyes and more accurate colour matching. These efforts are being made to cement further the good relationship that exists between the firm and the manufacturers; some of whom have been on their books since the days when James Dyson commenced business. What better recommendation could there be - their experience is at your service.

w. H. & J. BARBER, LTD.

The firm of W. H. and J. Barber Ltd. was founded in 1843 and the present directors are all relations of the original founders. In 1938 the fine worsted firm of B. Vickerman and Sons Ltd., founded 1792, was taken over and the manufacturing transferred to Holmbridge. Woollen and Worsted spinning, cloth manufacturing, mending and finishing are all carried out at Clarence Mills, Holmbridge. The majority of the cloths made are all-wool fine worsteds for the men's trade and vary in weight from 8oz. to 190z. The wool used is all Australian merino; W. H. and J. Barber using 64s A Quality and B. Vickerman super 70s quality and finer. The number of people employed varies between 125 and 135 and most of these have a long tradition of worsted manufacturing behind them and live locally. This ensures a high standard of product. A large proportion of the fabrics manufactured are exported to all corners of the world. The main markets being USA, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Norway, Finland, Holland, West Germany, Switzerland, Italy, South Africa, Greece and all countries in the Middle East. The selling is carried out by resident agents and also by travellers based in this country who are experts in their field and speak the language of the country travelled.

J. HAYWOOD & SONS

J. Haywood and Sons, now part of the Worsted Division of English Sewing Cotton Company Limited, have been established over 100 years. They specialise in the fine Worsted and Polyester blend suitings for which the Huddersfield area is justifiably renowned, making cloths from 60z., to 200z. per yard. All the processing from yarn to the finished pieces is carried out on the premises, by employees, many of whose families have worked with Haywoods for more than a generation, their skills being handed down, aided by the training and apprenticeship schemes run by the firm. A large modern weaving shed houses the most up-to-date and efficient automatic looms, practically all of which have facilities to produce a woven selvedge necessary for the ever-expanding Export Trade. Well over 1800 new patterns in a variety of shades are designed each year to keep abreast of changing fashions, which is necessary in catering for the 30 countries which are regularly visited by the Directors and Sales Staff together with the Resident Agents. With the more modern machinery and marketing techniques now in use, production and sales have increased very substantially over the last few years, so that out of the total production more than 75 per cent. is despatched abroad.

STORK BROS, LTD.

Messrs. Stork Bros. Ltd., situated at Bayhall Mills, Birkby, Huddersfield, are woollen spinners of Wool and Synthetic Fibres. The firm has been established for over 100 years, and the plant is one of the most modern in the woollen spinning industry. In recent years, owing to the decline in demand for cheap shoddy yarns, there have been many developments in the production in rug yarns, hand knitting yarns, and finer quality yarns for the knitted ladies' outerwear trade. These are made in a vast range of colours, both solid and mixture shades, and are made from All Wool, Wool /Nylon, Wool /Viscose, and 100 per cent. Synthetic Fibres.

TAYLOR & LODGE LTD.

This firm, along with its associate companies, Messrs. Kaye and Stewart Limited, and Messrs. Wm. Thomson (Fine Cloths) Limited, is numbered among the small group which today constitutes the elite of the so-called Huddersfield fine worsted trade. Founded in 1883, it has always concentrated on producing the finest of worsted piece goods, mainly for men's outer wear. In its earlier years, when fashion dictates indicated need for them, its production consisted mainly of plain mixture and piece dy2 coatings and fancy stiped trouserings. Even today, when the demands for this type of article are so much smaller, they nevertheless continue to show a wonderful collection of plains and standards of almost all types as well as still producing a collection of fancy trouserings. As time has passed, however, and especially in the years since the 1914-1318 War, they have developed more and more as fine fancy worsted manufacturers, until today they probably make a range of cloths and designs as varied and intricate as those of any mill. In the early 1920s, they claim to have been the first firm in the trade to Jevelop what has come to be known as the reverse twist cloth, which was later, and especially so in recent years, taken up by so many mills. Today Taylor and Lodge are recognised as one of the specialists in this type of designing and cloth production. The firm caters for customers in all the important countries of the world to which exports are possible. Although it makes cloths in almost all weights, in line with the modern demand, the average weight of the cloths it produces has been :oming down year by year. Today it makes many different light-weight cloths, some of which are even as light as 6%0z. In addition to light-weight worsted suitings, it also produces a range of worsted cloths specially styled for men's sportswear. All through the firm's history it has mainly concentrated on producing cloths of top quality merinos only, and today its basic cloths are made with what is described in Huddersfield as super 70's quality. It also includes in its collection some speciality cloths made of even higher qualities. These are, in fact, made from wool and yarns second to none being commercially produced in the world, which are sometimes described as super 100's. This firm still holds a conviction that wool is the finest fibre for high quality men's outerwear, despite having kept abreast of all modern developments in man-made fibres. Nevertheless, it does not scorn the use of man-made fibres, cspecially where these can be allied with wool to introduce some otherwise unobtainable special attraction. It has been successful with some highly attractive irridescent cloths which use one of the man-made fibres for their special effect. Mainly, however, their fancy effects, other than wool, are obtained by the traditional use of fine quality silks and mercerised cottons. Other speciality cloths make use of blends of wool with other rare natural fibres. Taylor and Lodge were honoured in 1966 by being included in the first list of firms to be awarded The Queen's Award to Industry.

JAMES BEAUMONT & SONS LTD.

This is an old-established firm of over 100 years, became a limited company in 1916, and under new management in 1962 has expanded rapidly, recently acquiring further premis2s at Scissett. One important development of the firm has been in the processing of the newer man-made fibres which call for special techniques in the dyeing programme.

JAMES SHIRES & SONS LTD.

James Shires and Sons Limited was established on the site of the present premises in Milnsbridge in 1864. The business was started as woollen yarn spinners and in time it was developed to manufacture woollen cloths, and later worsted cloths. The Directors of the parent company are all direct descendants of the founder. Worsted and woollen cloths in the medium price range for the men's trade in weights 12 to 18 ounces per yard are supplied to both the home and to many overseas markets. Woollen spun yarns are also produced for sale. These are used in the production of cloths for the men's and ladies' trades, and also the hosiery trade, A wide variety is available in all wool and also yarns blended with various man-made fibres. The counts range of yarns produced is mostly between 12-36 Yorkshire woollen skeins.

JOHN L. BRIERLEY LTD.

Founded in 1893, John L. Brierley Ltd. were originally Cotton Doublers only. But in 1925 they bought Wm. Hirst and Son (Hudds.) Ltd. and have since been Spinners as well. Although Cotton is still an important part of the production, the spinning is now 100 per cent. Viscose Rayon, and a large proportion of the doubling production is Rayon and Synthetics. A wide range is supplied to the Yorkshire Woollen and Worsted Trades, including White and Coloured Cotton and Spun Rayon yarns. Since the war re-equipment has gone ahead steadily and virtually all the machinery is now post-1950. Since about 1960, however, Cotton machinery has been undergoing a tremendous revolution, greater than at any time since the ring frame replaced the mule, and the rate of re-equipment is accelerating all the time. The latest machines have a performace which would have been considered impossible five years ago, but the rate of progress is now such that they will probably be obsolete in ten years. These new machines, some of which were pioneered in England at Turnbridge Mills, make it possible to produce much better yarns than ever before, and a substantial proportion of the folded production is of virtually

GODFREY SYKES & SONS LTD.

Founded in 1838, this firm has always manufactured pile fabrics for the ladies' and children's outerwear and lining trade, for the slipper trade, for toys and for the many varied outlets which have occurred for these types of material. For many years the firm has been well known for its imitation Persian Lamb and, while this is still a popular line, there is an increasing business in plushes with pile made of various synthetic fibres in addition to a steady trade in the traditional wool pile. In recent years, production has been concentrated on wool and nylon teddy linings for casual wear, fleecy linings and collars for the same purpose, imitation sheepskin for outerwear, shearlings for the footwear trade, and a wide variety of nylon plushes for children's garments and pram rugs. Many can be sold under the registered name "Syklam." A steady trade has also been carried on with many export markets including USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, the Continent of Europe, and Japan, and in recent years, in spite of restrictions placed on imports by the policies of overseas governments, this business has tended to increase.

FIELD & BOTTRILL LTD.

Field and Bottrill have been established for well over 100 years and today their production is confined to the manufacture of pile fabrics and plushes in a wide variety of forms which are used in many different made-up products such as Soft Toys, Ladies' Mantles and simulated Furs, Coat Linings, Footwear Linings and Trimmings, Furnishings, and even Powder Puffs. A Pile Fabric is usually made with a cotton backing or base and the pile can be of many different types of material - wool, mohair, rayon, nylon, cotton, etc. - the pile being woven into the backing on what is usually known as a "Double Plush Loom," that is a loom which weaves two pieces together, top and bottom piece, with two shuttles taking the cotton weft across their respective pieces, at the same time. Most of the effects are obtained during the dyeing and finishing processes and it is indeed difficult sometimes to tell the difference between the real skins and the simulations, such as Persian Lamb, Ocelot, Broadtail, etc. Some of the effects made for Toy manufacturing are often extremely life-like and some wonderful toys are made by the now highly experienced British Soft Toy makers, Siamese and Tabby Cats, Old English Bob-tail Sheepdogs, etc., and the still famous and popular Teddy Bears. Field and Bottrill's products are sold in most parts of the world, Peru, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Pakistan, Russia, and on the Continent of Europe, and although competition is very keen, particularly from Western Europe, they continue to do a very steady and useful export business, as has been the case for a long number of years, in spite of quotas and high tariff barriers.

J. BAILLY-ANCION LTD.

The Company was formed in 1934 for the purpose of operating a Wool Scouring and Carbonising business at Clough Lee Mills, Marsden. Clough Lee Mills are situated at the head of the Colne Valley close to the main Huddersfield-Oldham-Manchester road and with the railway nearby. These premises have an excellent supply of surface water which is suitable for the purpose of wool scouring without softening treatment. Practically all the processing machinery was imported from the Continent. The wool scouring and carbonising plant from the old-established firm of J. Bailly- Ancion, of Verviers, Belgium. Installation of the Scouring and Carbonising plant was completed in 1934, and production commenced in that year. A considerable business has been built up with merchants in the Bradford, Dewsbury, Huddersfield area, and the company has progressed steadily during the years until it is now known as one of the foremost commission processing concerns in the area. Strenuous efforts have been made to keep the company competitive on modern standards and during the years much modernisation of machinery has been effected. The scouring and carbonising has been completely modernised.

A. T. WOODHEAD & SONS LTD.

JONAS KENYON & SONS LTD.

Since the middle of the nineteenth century, Huddersfield has maintaintained its position as the leading centre for the production of the world's finest worsteds, and with the forward movement of the town and district in this connection, the firm of Jonas Kenyon and Sons Ltd., Dearneside Mills, Denby Dale, Huddersfield, can claim to have had a continuous association from the very start. The extensive business which is carried on today, had its inception in 1854 Jonas Kenyon, whose father and predecessors were clothiers and farmers. The founder of the business was joined in partnership by his three sons, John, William Henry and Arthy, and from 1880 the firm bore the title of Jonas Kenyon and Sons, until in 1903, the present private limited company was inaugurated. The site of the present mill was acquired in 1863, and in 1884 the production machinery was all converted from hand-work to steam operated. Today the company's mills at Denby Dale have been extended, and are substantial stone- built premises. It is a policy of the company to keep its plant and machinery as up- to-date as possible. Complete electrification, modern looms and finishing plant enable the company to produce the finest cloths, which are competitive in the various markets of the world, On the premises, and at subsidiaries, the yarn is warped and the pieces woven, then carefully mended under the best possible conditions, and the company's modern finishing plant and the many careful examinations ensure that the finished piece is as perfect as possible. The present-day production is of the finest worsted cloth for the men's and ladies' trade; highly skilled design staff under Eric Tinker are constantly producing a great variety of styles, both for the home and export markets, with every attention to the manifold details of the style of the day, The Kenyon family themselves are personally responsible for the production and sale of their cloths, and directly supervise all the operations and activities of the firm. Overseas visits are made to Europe, U.S.A., and to the Far East, to maintain regular contact with their customers, and to keep fully abreast with modern trends and requirements. This private firm of Jonas Kenyon and Sons Ltd. looks forward with confidence to the future. This is based partly on its long tradition, partly on its confidence and its present success, but mostly on its confidence in its present staff and employees to enable the company to continue to offer and produce the finest cloths giving the very best value.

Z. HINCHLIFFE & SONS LTD.

Hinchliffe's were in the spinning business in the days when it was done by hand! The activity started in 1789, the momentous year of the French revolution, and since that time, without break, Hinchliffe's have been producing the finest woollen and worsted yarns. Always in the forefront of progress, since a Hinchliffe installed the first Spinning Jenny in the district, the production of shrink resistant wool yarns under licence from the DYLAN organisation is in keeping with this tradition. The operation at Hartcliffe Mills, Denby Dale, and at the various subsidiaries, situated at Huddersfield, Birdsedge and Dalry, Ayrshire, start with raw wool and go forward through the various stages, including dyeing, to the production of worsted and woollen yarns. The accumulated experience of almost two hundred years of uninterrupted service to customers requiring woollen and worsted yarns, in itself speaks for the continuing high quality of these yarns.

DOBROYD LTD.

Dobroyd have for many years been known throughout the world as manufacturers of the highest quality pure wool cloths for the ladies' trade. The mills are among the most modern in the country, a position which has been achieved by a continuous process of modernisation and extension. This process has taken place since the very earliest days of the original mill and continues today, as is evidenced by the large-scale extensions and re-organisation that are at present in hand. When completed these plans will further assist the installation of new production methods. 50 years ago the mill came under the name of Dobroyd and since then the Company's influence in the trade has extended far and wide throughout the world's markets. Export trade has always been considered of supreme importance and in some markets, notably China and Japan, the Company was the first to introduce English woollen cloths for the ladies' trade. During the last half-century, the Management has earned the reputation for introducing only the best in the way of new buildings, new machinery and new methods, thereby producing first-class working conditions which are enhanced by the delightful setting of the mill on the edge of the Pennines. Proof of Dobroyd's success is given by the fact that in the last 30/40 years the number of employees has increased almost 10-fold and many Awards have been presented to Long-serving Employees. It is the intention in the future to pursue this course which has been so successful in the past, and with this in view the Company is constantly engaged in searching for new markets, new cloths and improved methods of production. In recent years great attention has been given to further improving Export trade with the result that today some 60 per cent. of the Company's output is exported to markets throughout the world.

JOSHUA WHITELEY & CO. LTD.

The firm was established in 1848, becoming a limited company in 1901. Up to 1944, it was occupied in Cotton Spinning and Doubling, i.e. from the raw cotton up to the final delivered products of beams and warps, hanks, cheeses, and cones for Weaving. Subsequent to a combination of circumstances, such as the growing difficulty of securing certain types of labour, the evolutionary changes in Lancashire spinning mills, and the greater need to diversify the products of the company, it was decided to concentrate on Doubling and subsequent processes only. Thus in 1945 all the plant required for spinning had been disposed of, and extensions made to the doubling and other processes. The latter policy has been continued up to the present time, and apart from the acquisition of new machinery, adaptations have constantly been made to secure greater flexibility in the work that can be undertaken. All this means that many textile yarns, both natural and man-made, and other than cotton, are processed, and the range for winding, doubling, twisting, and finishing of yarns is wide. Cotton yarns are supplied to customers in the same forms as formerly, but in a wider range of counts and types. It must be noted, however, that steady progress has been made in service to local textile manufacturers by way of single or multiple processing of wool, worsted and other yarns on commission, and this business has been welcomed and developed as much as possible. We would wish that this feature of the business should be stressed, as no longer do we designate ourselves simply as Cotton Doublers, but as Textile Yarn Processors.

Comprehensive stocks are always maintained.

The Company's Machinery Division specialises in the supply of British and Continental textile machinery of all types and holds several exclusive agencies. Additionally the division is responsible for the manufacture of machinery designed and patented by Uttley's technicians.

The Materials Handling Division is unique in that it is concerned entirely with textile materials handling, and it has been responsible for the installation of modern materials handling systems in mills throughout the United Kingdom. All items of materials handling equipment are supplied by this divsion, including containers, stillages, conveyors, fork lift trucks and other equipment used in the movement, storage and transportation of textile materials at all stages of manufacture and processing.

An associated company, Yorkshire Industrial Consultants Limited, has been operating since 1963 advising the textile industry on all aspects of mill modernisation, expansion and re-organisation and providing ancillary specialised services. Operating independently on a fee earning basis, this associated company is being increasingly recognised as the leading authority on all textile mill management problems.

To bring the various activities of the company to the notice of the industry Uttleys maintains its own film production company, Uttley Industrial Films. The productions of this unit have been widely acclaimed, and shown at textile societies all over the British Isles. Films showing mill modernisation case histories and the operation of new plant and equipment are in constant demand by mill managements. Several of the films have bsen used in many overseas countries, ranging from the United States to Rumania, constantly emphasising Huddersfield's eminence in the manufacture of textiles, and the manufacture and supply of textile machinery and equipment for the world's markets.

SHAW BROTHERS LTD.

Shaw Brothers Ltd., an old-established family business, are well-known both in England and abroad for their attractive and colourful ranges of woollen tweeds. They sell in most of the world's major markets, and exporting has always been a substantial part of their business.

In recent years the tweed range has been supplemented by a highly successful range of wool, lama and mohair coatings, and a more recent development still is the growth of business in printed woollens. Another expanding aspect of the firm's business is tweed sportscoatings, particularly in the United States.

A planned policy of capital re-equipment has kept their Larchfield Mills in the forefront as an efficient modern production unit and has led to considerable increases in productivity. The Mills now employ some 350 people.

WHITELEY & GREEN LTD.

Whiteley and Green Limited, of Hinchliffe Mill, Holmbridge, are specialist manufacturers of cloths suitable for outdoor sportswear.

The business was founded in 1879, and the main types of cloth now produced are Cavalry Twills, Bedford Cords and Whipcords in a wide range of weights, colours and prices, also a comprehensive range of Industrial Filter Cloths, which are manufactured from synthetic fibres.

The entire process of manufacture of woollen cloths, from the scoured wool to the finished cloth, is carried out in the compact, modernised plant at Hinchliffe Mill, situated near the source of the River Holme. A good supply of soft, clean water is readily available for the scouring and dyeing of pieces.

This firm is well-known for the hard-wearing properties and smart appear- ance of its cloths, and supplies Clothing Manufacturers and Merchants-both in the Home Trade and a world-wide Export Market-with good-quality materials which are made up into Sports Trousers, Jackets and Riding wear.

BUTTERWORTH & ROBERTS LTD.

Founded in 1868 Butterworth and Roberts Ltd. has been an independent family business ever since, being carried on by four successive generations of the Roberts Family.

The company's policy is to concentrate on a limited range of cloths, where good service and competitive prices can be given to customers catering for the popular medium class worsted trade. Great care is taken to produce a wide variety of designs and colourings, the emphasis being on the more sporting and colourful styles rather than on the conventional business suitings.

The mill is equipped with modern machinery in all departments, and all manufacturing processes, apart from spinning, are carried out on the premises. This ensures a high standard of quality control and facilitates accurate production forecasting.

Whilst the greater proportion of the mill's production is sold in the Home Trade the company also competes very successfully in a number of export markets, and it is continually exploring new outlets for the range of goods it is best equipped to produce. The sales staff are at all times ready to consider new markets, which call for cloths complementary to those in regular production, so making it possible to maintain the good value and service which are the firms first concern.

R. BUTTERWORTH & SON LIMITED

This woollen spinning mill caters for both the weaving and knitting trades - locally, in the Midlands, Scotland and the West of England. High-class yarns for knitwear form a large part of its production, while on the weaving side, yarns for most apparel fabrics are produced, both in wool and other fibres. Yarns for industrial and mechanical cloths are a newer development which show signs of expanding.

GEORGE MALLINSON & SONS LTD.

Mallinson's was established originally in 1840 as a family business, and was developed and extended by the founder and his two sons throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century, the business being formed into a private limited company in 1899. Expansion continued throughout the early part of this century, and in 1936 the whole of the share capital of Messrs. A. Crabtree and Co. (Spinners) Ltd., at Kirkburton, was acquired so as to supply the parent company with its own worsted yarns. Mallinson's was formed into a public company in 1937 and in 1952 the Kirkburton subsidiary was merged fully into the parent company.

To cope with Mallinson's constantly increasing demand for worsted yarns the whole of the share capital of Thornton Spinning Co. Ltd. of Bradord, was acquired in 1953 and an intensive programme of modernisation was commenced at this mill, along with that already being undertaken at Kirkburton, so as to make the yarns produced at these mills second to none. The last fifteen years has seen the construction and formation of the company's various mending branches as the Linthwaite premises and the supply of suitable labour became inadequate for the output of pieces. Today Mallinson's employ over 1,000 workpeople, and are one of the country's leading suppliers of medium-class worsted suitings. The company is also one of the most vertical in the country's wool textile industry - spinning its own worsted yarn from tops and woollen yarn right from the raw material, and dyeing these materials largely within its own dyehouse. These yarns are woven at Linthwaite, mended either at Linthwaite or at the Easingwold, Boroughbridge, or Thorne branches, and then scoured, finished and dispatched from Linthwaite. Methods of production, as with all other aspects of the business, are kept constantly under review, and the company's machinery is constantly being replaced so as to utilise the very latest developments from textile machinery makers. As new machinery becomes available it is considered, possibly experimented with, and if thought worth while, purchased in order to maintain the plant at the peak of perfection. The Worsted spinning factories at Kirkburton and Bradford make use of the Autoleveller Drawing System which produced a more level yarn with far less machinery, labour and floor space than the conventional Bradford Drawing System, and these mills also make use of modern large package, spinning, twisting and winding machinery. The dyehouse is equipped with some of the latest stainless steel dyeing machinery in order to produce the large number of shades required for the diverse range of cloths produced. Apart from the more conventional Dobross Automatic and Non- Automatic looms the Linthwaite factory is equipped with the very latest 4 x 4 Saurer Semi-Automatic looms and the revolutionary shuttleless Sulzer weaving machine. The company takes pride in the fact that it pioneered both of these types of machine in the Huddersfield district, and they are now running at very high speeds; the Sulzers at over twice the speed of conventional looms, producing woven cloth of a high standard than was previously considered possible. The cloth is mended by skilled menders, many of whom have been trained at the company's Mending School at Linthwaite or at the various mending branches working under first-class conditions. Several inspections of the cloth during the Finishing routine enable the menders to correct minor flaws in the cloth which were not at first apparent. The methods and machinery of the Scouring and Finishing Departments are fairly conventional, but the position here is constantly under surveillance and the machinery is fully up-to-date and is maintained in first- class condition. The qualities of cloth made consist of Super Botany and medium quality Worsteds, Worsted Fibro and Worsted Terylene fabrics largely for men's suitings in a particularly diverse range of qualities, weights, colours and designs from 1l1oz. to

16/17oz. per yard. Skilled designers co-operate with a trained sales staff who are not only constantly in touch with individual customers, but also pay frequent visits to the world's fashion centres in order to keep their fingers on the pulse of the very latest trends in style. Thus, whilst in no way neglecting the more conservatively dressed man these ideas are developed and are reflected in the modern style and colour trend of many of the cloths produced. The sales staff along with the company's agents cover a large market, not only in the United Kingdom, but also in North America, Europe, U.S.S.R., South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Young people at all levels with the Mallinson group are given every encouragement and facility to develop their particular talents, and the success that Mallinson's so obviously enjoy, and which is reflected in the confidence of their many customers is no doubt largely due to the fine spirit within the organisation the team-work displayed and the sense of satisfaction derived from working for one of Huddersfield's most successful public companies.

G. H. NORTON & CO. LTD.

Nortonthorpe Mills are one of the oldest establishments in Yorkshire. Textile production commenced in these Mills some time prior to 1790, and here the old traditions of quality and value have been imposed in the most modern methods and materials. Located at Scissett, about fifteen minutes from either Huddersfield or Wakefield on the A629 Manchester-Wakefield route, they are wholly engaged in the manufacture of woven, tufted and knitted Pile and Fur Fabrics and Floor Mats and Rugs from the yarn stage to the finished fabric. Within a few minutes of the M1 extension and under three hours by train from London (to Wakefield), it is readily accessible from any part of the country, and exports fabrics to many parts of the world. NORTOPILE Fabrics are available in a wide range of weights, pile lengths and densities in all manner of natural and man-made fibres, and include fabrics for coatings and linings, for shoe and slipper trimming and lining, for children's wear, pram and cot covers, as well as for toys, upholstery and industrial uses. Many are avaiable in attractive printed styles or with special finished, or foam, or other backing compounds for special purposes.

HARRY MELLOR & CO. LTD.

Harry Mellor & Co. Ltd. - founded in 1923 by Mr. Harry Mellor and Mr. J. A. Falck, is a small, by present-day standards, worsted cloth manufacturing concern, catering mainly for the better-class merchants and clothing manufacturers. Although small, the Company endeavours to export, and about 20/25 per cent. of the production is sent directly overseas, and obviously, a large proportion of home trade goods find their way abroad through indirect exports. The Company has world-wide representation, the more important being Italy, Switzerland, Japan, Canada, U.S.A. and the Middle East. The present direction of the Company is in the hands of Mr. David M. Mellor and Mr. John W. Falck, the respective sons of the two founders, ably assisted by a highly efficient staff, and as a result of the firm being a small family business, prompt and personal attention can be given to all inquiries. Most of the cloths produced are of a plain or classic appearance in weights varying from 10-2lo0zs. per yard, but one or two highly specialised cloths are produced, the most outstanding being a heavyweight 80's quality yarn dyed Venetian. Our representation in London and the Home Counties is by Messrs. C. A. Hewett & Son, Golden House, 29, Gt. Pulteney Street, London, W.1.

W.S. which is now available to Woollen Yarn Spinners.

GEORGE BEAUMONT & SONS (FENAY BRIDGE) LTD.

George Beaumont and Sons (Fenay Bridge) Ltd., of Rowley Mills, have been country dyers and finishers, proofers and shrinkers to the textile trade since 1851. Ever since they were established this company has remained under the direction of the original Beaumont family. The mills, situated some four miles south of Huddersfield, near Fenay Bridge, stand on the site of one of the oldest woollen mills in the area, and to this day remain in pleasant rural surroundings. Although long established this firm has always been progressive in outlook - being one of the first companies to use motor transport and to install electricity for power and lighting. Since the last war the layout of the mill has been completely reorganised and the buildings virtually rebuilt and extended so that process work is now carried out "on one level" with all machines individually driven. Many new types of machines, both British and Continental, have been introduced in the last few years to improve quality and productivity - this company was the first commission finishers in this country to install the now universally accepted "high-speed" scouring machine. George Beaumont and Sons, being entirely independent of any other firm or group, will continue their long-established principal of giving the best possible service to their customers and maintain their position as fore-runners in the drive for even higher quality standards in the processing of all types of textile piece- goods and will always be willing to experiment with new fibres and types of finish to give every possible assistance to manufacturers.

THE ENGLISH CARD CLOTHING CO. LTD.

The English Card Clothing Co. Ltd. was formed in the year 1897. The Lindley firm of Joseph Sykes Brothers was the largest of a group of card makers which formed the company. Flexible card clothing has been manufactured in Lindley by the Sykes family since about 1790 and wire drawing was certainly being carried on by the same family before 1833 when Charlotte Sykes built Acre Mills. Overseas, the group has factories in India, Holland, France and Belgium, with workshops in the U.S.A., Canada, Germany and South Africa, and a large percentage of the group's products is exported. Joseph Sykes Brothers have enjoyed an unequalled reputation for the quality of their products in overseas countries since 1844 when the firm supplied the first card clothing ever to enter Russia. In 1848 Joseph Sykes Brothers supplied card clothing to America and in 1854 it was exported to India. Today the Huddersfield premises contain one of the world's most technically advanced wire drawing mills, where speciality steel wire is produced for a wide variety of industries.

MOORHOUSE & BROOK LTD.

Moorhouse and Brook Ltd. is one of many textile firms in this town with a reputation for the manufacture of high-grade Woollen and Worsted productions. Their specialities in luxurious Woollen Coatings are renowned - in particular they are one of the largest users of Cashmere, which is employed in considerable quantity in its pure 100 per cent. state and also blended with high- grade Wool for the production of an extensive range of Suitings and Coatings. They also make a Coating from 100 per cent. Vicuna - the most expensive hair ever to be used in men's wear. Their specialities also include All Wool Overcoatings and Top Coatings for men's wear; Cashmere/ Worsted Suitings; Black Coatings and Clerical Greys for ceremonial dress; Fine Worsted Baratheas for evening wear; and many other standard plain goods in Suitings, etc. This firm's products are sold under the Trade Mark "Moorbrook," and their name is well-known in most countries of the world.

FRED LAWTON & SON LTD.

The private family business was established in 1902 by Fred Lawton, grandfather of the present Managing Director. The Company has expanded steadily over the last ten years and now employs 180 persons in the spinning of Woollen Yarn for the Carpet Industry and for the Hosiery and Weaving Trades. During 1967 the Company purchased Spa Mills, Lepton, a single-storey mill of 35,000 sq. ft. in a pleasant 6 acre site. There they established a Hosiery and Weaving Yarn Division with plant sited to give maximum working efficiency and simplified materials flow. Firth Street Mills now comprise the Head Office and Carpet Yarn Division where modern up-to-date plant ensures the production of yarns of the highest quality. This Division will be further developed exclusively for the production of Wool and Wool/Nylon Mixture Yarns for the Woven and Tufted Carpet Industries. During the past five years Export business has expanded rapidly and over half the Carpet Yarn production now goes overseas. The Company has a vigorous, young and well qualified management team with a progressive outlook and an expansionist policy.

MIDDLEMOST BROS. & CO. LTD.

This is an old-established Company, which has recently joined with the well- known firm of George H. Hirst & Co. Ltd., and has specialised for over 100 years in the manufacture of High Fancy Fabrics for Ladies. The range produced includes Boucles, Coatings, Costume Cloths in Mohair, Cashmere, and Alpaca, also long hair finished, and many others.

All the cloths are made in a wide and exciting range of design, colours and weaves containing specially selected Australian pure virgin wool which gives them the famous "Middlemost Look" and handle.

All the normal processes of manufacturing woollen cloth from the raw wool to the finished article are carried out at the Company's own mills by highly skilled employees, many of whom have been with the Company for upwards of fifty years. It is the skill and craftsmanship of these employees with years of experience behind them which largely contributes to the beautiful cloths that are made. Some of the employees began work in the Company's own apprenticeship training scheme (now integrated with the Woollen and Worsted Federation Scheme) which gives practical training in the mill combined with part-time day instruction at the Huddersfield College of Technology.

The vertical organisation, not being dependent on any outside processing, allows the Company to give a quick delivery of orders and enables them to keep delivery promises. The cloth is exported to, and the Company has Agents in America, Canada, the Continent of Europe, and the principal countries in the Near and Far East. The Company's management and staff of highly skilled designers, colourists and stylists constantly visit these markets and consult with Agents and customers as to what designs and fabrics are likely to be required each season. Cloth buyers from all parts of the world also make periodic visits to the mills in order to keep abreast with the new fabrics and styles.

The name of "Middlemost" is known all over the world and is synonymous with quality and fashion tweeds under its trade name of Peak Tweeds.

JOB BEAUMONT & SON LTD.

This is an old-established firm of Fancy Woollen Manufacturers founded in 'he Eighteen Fifties; they moved in 1902 to their present premises at Woodland Mills, Longwood, from where they are still trading as an independent private company, guarding a world-wide reputation built up throughout the trade for the quality fancy woollen cloths which they have been producing for more than a hundred years.

Job Beaumont's make a very wide range of cloths from Lightweights of 7/8oz. suitable for Dresses up the Heavyweight Coating of 27/280z., many of these cloths carrying the Wool Mark Label. Cloths produced at Woodland Mills contain a high percentage of Fancy Twist Yarns for Novelty Effects, these coupled with new designs and colours which this firm considers to be of the utmost importance, enable their cloths to fill the latest fashion needs.

This firm is a completely vertical organisation, which has enabled the management to build up a first-class reputation for service. This, allied to the great ability of their Design Staff, ensures that "Beau-Wool" tweeds fill an ever- increasing Export Trade which now accounts for over 60 per cent. of the production of this company, with the main markets overseas being Canada and the USA, Europe, Scandinavia and the Far East.

BROOK MOTORS LTD.

PIONEERING THE A.C. ELECTRIC MOTOR

Founded in 1904, Brook Motors Ltd. were the pioneer manufacturers of alternating current electric motors in this country, and today they are the largest exclusive makers of these machines. Ernest Brook, the founder, had only two helpers when he took a small room in Threadneedle Street, Huddersfield, and many experienced electrical engineers of the day were sceptical when they heard that he intended making A.C. electric motors, then an unknown quantity. The business grew rapidly and before long he had to take larger premises in Colne Road, in 1911. Expansion continued, and soon another move was necessary. This time Mr. Brook decided to build his own factory in St. Thomas's Road, which he called the Empress Works. This building is now part of the present Huddersfield factory. In order to increase production, another works was built on the opposite side of the road, and was used to machine motor castings. Then a third works was added for packing and despatch; and another for making motors of very large horse-power. Further buildings were occupied later, including an assembly shop, a motor garage and a repairs factory, until a large area on both sides of the main road had been covered by the company. Since Brook Motors became a public company in 1950 expansion has been extremely rapid. There are now factories at Barnsley, Honley and Rochdale. All have been extended from time to time and the total labour force is now over three thousand five hundred. The Barnsley works is a motor winding factory and also incorporates the Control Gear Division. Honley factory makes fractional horse power motors in the main section but has a large press shop where electric motor laminations are produced. Rochdale makes stator-rotor units.

EXPORTS

Expansion at home has been matched by a steady growth of interests overseas. In 1953 Brook Motor Corporation was established in the United States and business in that country continues to grow. A chain of stock warehouses and a network of selling agents has been set up covering the whole of America, controlled from the Chicago Office. In 1958 Brook Electric Motors of Canada Ltd., based in Toronto commenced trading. Staffed by technical sales personnel from Huddersfield, the company has flourished and has made its third move to larger premises. A subsidiary company has been opened in Dusseldorf, West Germany, Brook Elektromotoren GmbH. With the introduction of motors to metric dimensions and the possibility of our entry in the Common Market it was felt that representation should be available in this important prospective market. In addition to these three subsidiary companies, Brook has agents in over seventy other countries, which accounts for its flourishing export business. In fact about 80 per cent. of motors made find their way abroad, either directly or by way of customers' machines.

USES OF ELECTRIC MOTORS AND ELECTRIC MOTOR STARTERS

The three main factories - Huddersfield, Barnsley and Honley - manufacture between them more than 10,000 motors each week, an output that is achieved only by the use of automated techniques. Modern work handling systems

132

Page 135

and fully automatic stator winding machines at the Barnsley and Honley works make use of the various feminine skills that produce a large proportion of modern electric motors. A training school for winders has been set up so that the flow of skilled employees needed for this work is maintained. Thus the range of standard electric motors is a wide one, and covers horsepowers from as small as 1/25th right up to 650. In this large range are many different types of motors, designed for differing industries and conditions. There is, for example, a motor that is specially built for operating in extremely bad conditions, such as those experienced in the chemical industries. It is protected against chemical fumes, moisture and extremes of heat and cold, and has been proved to outlast an ordinary motor by ten to twenty times. Another motor is designed for mines, petroleum pumping stations and chemical plants, where there is a possibility of fire or small explosions. The machine is built with a special sealing system that will withstand these hazards. Other industries which need motors with special characteristics include the food industry, the machine tool industry, the quarrying industry, agriculture, textiles, and heating and ventilating engineering, besides many others too numerous to mention. The Rochdale works produces stator/rotor units, some of them specially prepared for inclusion in refrigerators where they are sealed into the compressor units. Standard S/R units comprising the bare rotor and stator of the motor are built into machine tools and woodworking machinery where a special cavity is prepared for the stator and the rotor is pressed directly onto the machine driving shaft. There are inherent differences in the motors required in each of the above industries. Electric motors need allied equipment to start and stop them, and the making of these items is another aspect of the Company's business. Control gear can be supplied to control a whole factory, or just one small motor, depending on the requirements of the customer.

STILL A FAMILY CONCERN

Directors are Mr. Frank V. Brook, chairman and joint managing director; Mr. J. L. Brook, F.LE.E., vice-chairman and joint managing director; Mr. David Brook, Sales Director; Mr. G. M. Shepley, Secretary; Mr. G. D. Furness and Mr. R. Hardcastle.

HIGHFIELD GEAR & ENGINEERING CO. LTD.

We have been established for nearly 50 years, starting as a gear-cutting company in the district of Highfields, hence our name. We later moved to our present premises at Nile Street and at the same time began designing and manufacturing a comprehensive range of Totally Enclosed Gear Units. We have continued to develop both our Gear Units and Customer Gearing side of our business and our success is indicated by the constant expanding demand for our products. We are a private company employing approximately 200 people, with an up- to-date machine tool plant enabling us to produce our various products to a high standard of workmanship. Our design staff, drawing office and sales force, are technically equipped to deal with any problem involving the use of any type of gearing. Our products are in use throughout the world, backed up by first-class technical representation.

w. C. HOLMES & CO. LTD.

To be old or, in the case of a company, long established is not in itself meritorious. After all, old age and wisdom do not necessarily go together. Long- established companies cannot trade on the fact that they were founded in the dim and distant past. If they are to maintain their position and indeed grow, they must adapt themselves to meet changing conditions - new products must be developed and new markets found.

Until a comparatively short time ago Holmes largest customer by far was the Gas Industry - today, the position is considerably changed with Holmes products being sold to numerous industries both at home and overseas.

The Holmes range of products is extremely varied and includes at one end of the scale £1,000,000 plus electrical precipitator installations for power stations and at the other small air blowers for use on bulk transport vehicles. When such widely differing products are involved, production techniques will, of course, vary and the Holmes plant at Turnbridge has been extensively modernised to enable all types of products and components to be produced on time and at competitive prices. The acquisition of RBS Engineers Limited of Stalybridge a year or two ago has assisted the streamlining of production by enabling the manufacture of certain products to be carried out at the Stalybridge Works.

Other products manufactured at Turnbridge include inert gas generators, carbon dioxide generators, industrial gas meters, chemical engineering plant, bulk and domestic refuse pulverisation plant and a comprehensive range of dust collection and control plant.

HOPKINSONS LTD.

Hopkinsons Limited, of Britannia Works, Huddersfield, are internationally well-known for their valves and boiler mountings. They have been concerned with the manufacture of these highly specialised fittings for 125 years, and are one of the world's leading manufacturers of valves. Their products are to be found in practically every type of industrial installation as well as in widespread use in the marine field, and Hopkinsons' valves are exported to nearly every country in the world.

The history of the firm goes back to 1843, when Joseph Hopkinson commenced business in a small way as a manufacturer of engineering fittings and particularly steam engine and boiler accessories. From the first he aimed at the production of equipment in which reliability and durability were of prime importance, and this policy has been consistently followed by his successors in the business.

The firm has played a notable part in the introduction of new types of equipment; for example, some 84 years ago they patented the parallel-slide valve which, in many modified forms, is in world-wide use, while in recent years they have developed the torsion-bar safety valve for use on boilers operating at the highest pressures.

It is, in fact, in the field of very high steam pressures and temperatures that Hopkinsons have built up a unique reputation, and their valves and mountings are today in use in the majority of electrical generating stations, both thermal and nuclear, and high-pressure industrial plants in Great Britain as well as in a great many notable installations abroad. Equipment has been supplied for boilers operating at supercritical steam conditions of 3,6501b./ in.", 1,110 deg. F.

Hopkinsons' interest in marine valves has greatly increased during the post- war period, and most of the large passenger liners, including the new Cunard liner, built in British yards have been supplied with Hopkinsons' valves. Ships of the large tanker fleets also rely on them to an increasing extent. In addition to valves and boiler mountings of standard design, many of these vessels are equipped with manoeuvring valves and emergency steam stop valves, particularly designed for marine installations.

At the Britannia Works, where the firm employs about 2,300 people, all stages in valve manufacture from metallurgical and foundry work to the fitting of electrical controls are carried out, and the factory has undergone numerous extensions in recent years.

Every effort has been made to keep the works abreast of modern technique and manufacturing processes, and improvements to plant and equipment are continuous. Major recent extensions have been the construction of the Birkby Lodge Works exclusively for the machining and assembly of large numbers of forged steel valves in sizes up to 2in. bore, and the erection of the Blacker Road Works, specially equipped for the construction of large stop valves.

The successful development of Hopkinsons' soot blowers, especially in the field of power stations, has also necessitated an extension of the assembly department of this division, and the erection of a new administrative block housing the drawing, clerical and managerial offices adjoining the soot blower section of the works.

For many years Hopkinsons have also manufactured a successful centrifugal separator for dealing with various kinds of oils, solvents, paints, varnishes, grinding oils, and numerous liquids in the food industry.

Hopkinsons Limited is one of the six members of the Hopkinsons Holdings Group of Companies. The parent company, Hopkinsons Holdings Limited, was registered in 1966 and operates from Britannia Works, Birkby.

Other members of the Group are J. Blakeborough and Sons Limited, of Brighouse (valves, etc.), Wolstenholmes (Radcliffe) Limited, Radcliffe, Man- chester (valves, etc.), John Moncrieff Limited, of Perth, Scotland (industrial glassware). These firms manufacture products which are, in the main, outside the range of equipment made by Hopkinsons Limited. Two non-manufacturing organisations, Hopkinsons (South Africa) Pty. Limited, with headquarters in Johannesburg, and Hopkinsons (Australia) Pty. Limited, of Sydney, are also Associates of Hopkinsons Limited within the Group.

PNEUMATIC CONVEYORS (HUDD.) LTD.

Originally an existing engineering works in Willow Lane taken over in 1950 by the present directors with specialised technical "know-how" of Textile Wool Blending this firm had developed so that by 1960 when additional manufacturing space was required a new factory was built in Leeds Road near to the Town football ground. Specialising in "Wool Blending Equipment" with particular emphasis on Wool Oiling the "Atomist" Wool /Fibre Oiler pioneered in 1952 had been develpped to such a degree by "Autoflow Control" and recently by "Auto-Regulo Control" that level oiling of textile fibres, a most important feature in the production of "Huddersfield Cloth," could be automatically controlled by the material flow from the Blending Units, further developments followed and with "P.C. Waste End Collectors" for Cards and "Pneumafeed Units" for other textile application the name of "Pneumatic Conveyors" became well known both in the United Kingdom and overseas, equipment having been supplied to Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Finland, Holland, Norway, South Africa and recently USA. In recent years the firm has diversified into the Air Conditioning field. This was a natural progression as it enabled existing plant and labour to be further utilised and on the Design and Drawing Office side the technical experience gathered over the years was supplemented by the introduction of new and specialised techincal skills. The Air Conditioning Department can now cater for contracts of varying size from the simplest ventilation and warm air heating schemes to complete air conditioning plants. Further extensions are now in progress to facilitate manufacture of Plastic Fabrication as required for both their Textile and Air Condition Products.

F. W. TAYLOR & SON LTD.

Founded in 1891 the main activity of the firm is electrical contracting, including the installation of control equipment of our own design and manufacture. The firm specialises in the "difficult" job - the prototype, the situation where standard equipment is unsuitable, the adaptation of existing machines. Not mnly making the equipment but installing and servicing on site. Among the specialities are devices for the woollen trade. These include a 'Weigh Check" which warns that a hopper feed on a carding machine will "run off" if not replenished; another device gives an alarm and stops a carding set if the licker-in fails; a woollen milling machine drive to stop instantaneously if the cloth becomes entangled but starts again if the entanglement frees itself. Building up worn shafts by metal spraying and profile cutting are also carried out.

T. W. BROADBENT LTD.

The late Mr. T. W. Broadbent commenced business in 1891, and the firm became a limited company in 1907. Early activities included the manufacture of direct and alternating current machines and switchgear. Numerous machines were built in the earlier premises, namely Victoria Lane, and with the formation of the Company in 1907, new premises, namely Victoria Electrical Works, were built in East Parade. Manufacture of an extensive range of products continued together with site installation work for lighting, power and numerous electrical services. The firm was responsible for a number of complete contracts for the supply and installation of generating plant, with associated overhead distribution lines. The Holmfirth public electricity supply was an instance of such a scheme in this area. Mr. Broadbent also pioneered the public electricity supply in the districts of Kirkheaton and Lepton. As the company was not able to undertake the mass-production of electrical equipment, its activities were gradually developed in the field of electrical installation work. This has now become the major activity, and contracts are undertaken in a wide variety of locations throughout the British Isles. These include work in power stations, both thermal and nuclear, public buildings, including Universities, colleges and hospitals, and a very extensive field of industrial work in numerous types of factories. Customers include government departments, nationalised undertakings, public corporations, local authorities and large industrial groups. The range also includes domestic work and the retailing of domestic appliances, radio and television. During recent years our activities have extended overseas, and our men have worked in four different continents. We have a subsidiary Company established in Scotland, and are at present engaged on a number of important contracts over the Border. The construction of the new inner ring road made it necessary for the

company to move to entirely new premises, and Victoria Electrical Works is now situated in Queensgate.

G. R. BOOTH

Situated on the Halifax side of the town, this company occupies a unique niche in the engineering life of Huddersfield and the surrounding area. Although chiefly known for the wide variety of Tungsten Carbide Tipped Milling Cutters which are made in all sizes up to 24in. diameter, End Mills and Reamers and other Tools, both standard and special, are in frequent demand. The specialsed plant and modern equipment necessary to produce these cutters at a competitive price are also at Customers' disposal for such services as Tool and Cutter Grinding, Surface and Cylindrical Grinding, Edge Grinding, Radius Grinding, Universal and Angular Milling and many other precision machining operations. Hobs up to 12in. diameter x 12in. long are sharpened on a Pfauter Automatic Hob Grinder. Carbide Tipped Tools and Cutters are regularly repaired and reconditioned and a collection and delivery service is maintained so that Customers' tools can be serviced with the least possible delay. The company recently celebrated its tenth birthday and, when the modest beginning with a single machine is contrasted with the present comprehensive plant, it is felt that the declared policy of careful, personal attention to the customers' requirements has been appreciated.

IMPERIAL CHEMICAL INDUSTRIES LIMITED

THE HUDDERSFIELD WORKS OF DYESTUFFS DIVISION

When Huddersfield received its charter of incorporation as a County Borough in 1868 it already nourished an eight-year-old synthetic dyestuffs industry. This lusty infant represented a useful diversification of interests in what was then essentially a wool textile town. It was the swift-running hill streams of soft water (ideal for wool scouring, as well as useful for driving water wheels) that had attracted the wool industry to the Huddersfield district; it was the unsightly heaps of waste coal tar adjacent to the local gasworks that attracted the organic chemicals and dyestuffs industry. Read Holliday, a young wool spinner from Bradford, in 1830 began distilling this tar to get, first of all, ammonia for wool scouring and, secondly, creosote, burning naphtha, benzene, paint solvents and other valuable hydrocarbons. So, when William Perkin, the youthful London chemistry student (who incidentally had some West Riding forbears) discovered the world's first successful synthetic dyestuff in 1856 (starting from the chemical aniline, derived from benzene), Holliday was well placed, as a producer of the primary raw material required, to embark on dyestuffs manufacture. This he did in 1860, starting with magenta, appropriately enough a valuable wool dyestuff.

A NEW INDUSTRY DEVELOPS

For the next fifty-five years the firm of Read Holliday and Sons, on its site at Turnbridge (which only last year, with the closure of the block of research laboratories there, severed its long association with dyestuffs manufacture), shared in full measure the trials and vicissitudes - but also the triumphs - of the steadily growing dyestuffs industry. Unhappily, for a variety of reasons (notably, inadequate science education and antiquated patent laws) the initiative in dyestuffs manufacture gradually passed abroad from the 1880s onwards, and in 1914 the weakened Holliday enterprise needed Government financial help and participation to undertake the urgent expansion dictated by the needs of war. A new company, British Dyes Limited, was formed for this purpose in 1915 to take over the Holliday concern and a new spacious site at Dalton acquired. In 1919, after the eventful war years, during which explosives were manufactured as well as dyestuffs, the Huddersfield factory ceased to be a purely local enterprise. The harsh economic facts of peace-time existence forced it to amalgamate with the only other sizeable U.K. dyestuffs concern, Levinstein Ltd., of Manchester, to form the British Dyestuffs Corporation, with a capital of £5m.

Aided by the Dyestuffs Import Control Act of 1921, although badly hit by the flood of "reparations" dyestuffs sent from Germany after the war finished, the new company limped through the slump years of the early 1920s while slowly trying to rebuild the industry and extend its range of products. It was not, however, until the formation of ICI in 1926 - with the British Dyestuffs Corporation as one of the four participating companies in the merger - that a satisfactory basis for real progress was established. Under the broad umbrella of ICI with its much greater financial resources and wider diversity of interests, worn-out plants could be steadily redesigned and rebuilt and obsolete plants replaced, at the same time as a vigorous research department was built up and both short- and long-term programmes of research embarked upon to improve existing ranges of products and discover and develop new ones. This was the pattern of things throughout the late 1920s and 1930s.

Page 147

RUBBER CHEMICALS, DRUGS AND DETERGENTS

The fruits of sustained and imaginative research began to be seen in the wider range of the Dalton factory's interests. Many of the intermediate products in dyestuffs manufacture form valuable starting points for other types of products and soon the factory was producing vulcanization accelerators and antioxidants for the rubber industry, auxiliary products for use in textile processing and in the paper, leather and fur industries, as well as pest control products, fungicides and growth stimulants for the horticultural and agricultural industries. Later came specialized detergents, synthetic resins for paints and lacquers, photographic chemicals, and chemicals for use in the manufacture of drugs and medicinal products. At the same time, steady expansion and improvement were taking place in the factory's traditional interests, with new ranges of colours being introduced, such as the azoic dyestuffs ("Brentamine" Fast Bases and Salts and "Brenthol" coupling components) and the "Monolite" pigments for use in paints, printing inks, leathercloth and plastics. The outbreak of war again in 1939 found the factory transformed into a strong, completely modern, soundly integrated manufacturing unit, highly advanced technically and well-equpped to handle the many new and heavy demands that were to be made on it. Vastly increased production of colouring matters of all kinds was called for and, as the war progressed, there were steadily increasing demands for specialized organic chemicals such as fuel additives, intermediate products for antimalarials and other urgently required drugs, coloured smoke signal compounds and many other complex organic chemicals needed for the prosecution of the war. Of special interest was the pilot plant put up for the manufacture of nylon polymer, then in its infancy; this highly complex plant was designed, constructed and brought into operation to meet urgent military needs of fine parachute fabric, lightweight glider tow-ropes and so on.

A SECOND TRANSITION FROM WAR TO PEACE

The transition from a war-time to a peace-time footing was a far less devastating business in 1945 than in 1918. Severe rationing almost everywhere, particularly of textiles, meant an upsurge in demand for colouring matters to meet general post-war needs. Moreover, the energetic drive of the ICI sales organization to re-establish itself in markets all over the world served to swell and sustain this demand and to establish beyond doubt the world importance of British dyestuffs. The addition to the selling range of important new products, in the development of which the Huddersfield Works of ICI has played a notable role, has emphasized this importance and contributed to the continuing vigorous state of the factory and the prosperity of the town. Pre-eminent among the new products have besn the epoch-making "Procion" fibre-reactive dyes, for which the Huddersfield factory has supplied a high proportion of the intermediate products, and which since 1956 have revolutionized the dyeing and printing of cotton, linen and rayon. These were followed by the "Procinyl" fibre-reactive disperse dyes for nylon, made in their entirety at Huddersfield. More recent - and of special importance to the local textile industry - are the "Procilan" fibre-reactive dyes for wool for which Huddersfield makes the intermediates and which enable dyeings of superlative wash fastness to be obtained by a simple dyeing process where previously far more complicated application procedure had usually been necessary.

THE FACTORY TODAY

Today the factory employs over 3,000 people, compared with about 1,900 before the war. It is by far the largest of the nine factories operated by ICI Dyestuffs Division and to this extent has not suffered from the loss of local control.

145

Page 148

On the contrary, the Dalton Works is better placed than most to cater for expansion, and the long local tradition of know-how or aptitude for employment in the manufacture of organic chemicals is a valuable asset in this connection. Local technical education facilities, too - a vital matter in a science-based industry like dyestuffs - are among the best in the country.

From the employee's standpoint there is the interest and satisfaction of working in a thrusting, forward-looking industry in which techniques as well as products are constantly being refined.

Dyestuffs remain the backbone of the factory's interests, but dye-making is no longer the manual job it was in the early pioneer days at Turnbridge. More and more processes are becoming totally enclosed; instrumentation and automation are leading to cleaner plants, better-quality products and pleasanter working conditions. In addition to dyes, an increasing number of auxiliary products are being made for use in the textile, paper, paints, printing inks, plastics and leather industries. Synthetic resins for use in paints and lacquers, intermediate products for pesticides and medicinals and chemotherapeutic drugs are being made in large quantities and also some of the more important of the Company's extensive range of rubber chemicals. A post-war development of special interest has been the range of special polymers and organic isocyanates developed for use in the manufacture of polyurethane lacquers and of the polyurethane foams (both flexible and rigid) that are finding such wide and increasing use nowadays in furniture and in garments and (in the case of rigid foams) in building and engineering.

From the standpoint of the townspeople of Huddersfield the unruly infant of a hundred years ago has grown up and achieved full maturity and can now be regarded with pride as a valuable contributor to the prosperity of the town and, through its exports, to the economic welfare of the nation.

L. B. HOLLIDAY & CO. LTD.

The family of Holliday have been connected with the manufacture of chemicals and dyestuffs from the very earliest times. It originated in Huddersfield when the great-grandfather of the present managing director of L. B. Holliday and Co. Ltd. commenced business in 1830. At that time Mr. Read Holliday was a distiller of ammonia, which he sold to the textile industry in this district.

When dyestuffs were discovered, therefore, by Perkin in 1856 (mauve, the first aniline dyestuff), it was quite natural that the Holliday family should be interested in this development, being already in the chemical business, and they carried out in their works the distillation of coal tar, and later developed the manufacture of dyestuffs.

The name of Holliday in the dyestuff business is one which is known by the dyestuff consuming industries throughout the world.

All types of dyestuffs are manufactured at the works at Deighton, Huddersfield. They are used for colouring all types of materials, e.g. Wool, Cotton, and Artificial fibres, as well as in the Ink, Paint and Pigment industries and in the dyeing of Leather and Paper. The firm of Holliday produces wide ranges of intermediate products, also auxiliary products such as opticial lightening agents for use in conjunction with various dyeing processes.

JOHN QUARMBY & SON LTD.

The firm now known as John Quarmby and Son Limited was established in 1872, and it is a point of interest that the present Chairman of Directors, Mr. Frank R. Quarmby, who still plays an active part in the control of the Company, is the younger son of its founder - John Quarmby of Slaithwaite.

John Quarmby started in business as a merchant of paper bags and wrappings at Slaithwaite. One room housed his entire stock, his office and his transport - a handcart. His progress soon enabled him to employ a boy for deliveries, and in 1889 he took his elder son, Joseph, into partnership.

Through the enterprise of "Joe," as he was widely known, the firm was in adequate premises in Huddersfield by 1896. Here it had its own bag-making machines and a department for handmade bags, and in 1900 the first venture into cardboard box-making took place.

In 1906 the firm moved to East Parade - now known as Queensway - into larger premises which were almost completely destroyed by fire on the 15th of April, 1912 - the date of the "Titanic" disaster. After rebuilding, these premises were re-occupied and re-equipped, but the bag-making machines were not replaced, as it was decided to concentrate on the production of boxes.

Since these days progress has been interrupted only by the two War periods, during which most of the male staffs served in the Forces, and the plant suffered from lack of normal maintenance and shortage of replacements. In 1932 the manufacture of printed absorbent drip mats was initiated, and the current annual production is more than 600 times the total of the mats produced in the first full year's work.

Other successful innovations include the making of a wide variety of Filing Equipment and, more recently, the undertaking of Contract Packing, including the Shrink Wrapping process. The inauguration of this service became feasible after the move in 1960 from Huddersfield to Milnsbridge, where it was possible to provide suitable storage space for customers' goods.

The present factory is situated on the North side of Britannia Road, Milnsbridge, and houses the parent company and one of its subsidiaries, United Box Company Limited, while a second subsidiary, Packing and Presentation Limited, occupies premises, comprising offices, showroom and warehouse immediately across the road. The factory is equipped with a large variety of machinery, much of which is automatic, including some advanced prototype models.

w. H. SHAW & SON (EXPORT PACKING) LIMITED

W. H. Shaw and Son (Export Packing) Ltd. have developed a complete Export Packing Service which is now second to none!

A feature of their service is a quick turn-round of customers' export goods, which rarely exceeds three days and quite often is effected in less than twenty-four hours. The Company is well served by a fleet of ten haulage vehicles. Distance presents no problem; collections can be made anywhere within a radius of 150 miles yet prices remain competitive. The Shaw service includes, if required, haulage to port, delivery F.0.B. or C.LF. to any part of the world. Goods to a maximum of 50 tons in 1 lift can be handled.

Above everything, customers large and small can be sure of personal attention to their needs. " Personal Service" has always been the watchword of the Company and will always remain so.

It is an old-established Company being founded in 1884 and has a reputation for first-class workmanship, attention to detail and service to the client. Although the Company operates throughout the whole of the West Riding of Yorkshire and East Lancashire its main interest lies in Huddersfield where it has built many of the town's finest structures, including the Public Library, ABC Theatre, College of Technology, Huddersfield Crematorium, Modernisations to the Sewage Works, several Schools and Youth Clubs, Training College Hostel, etc. The Company is at present engaged in the Huddersfield area in the second phase of the new Civic Centre incorporating the Law Courts, Police Headquarters and Weights and Measures Departments, further extensions to the College of Technology, a Welfare Centre, Schools, Depots for the Yorkshire Electricity Board and the West Riding Highways Department, as well as several projects for the town's private and commercial enterprises. The Company has its own large and modern Joiners' Shop which plays an important part in attaining the high standard of finish expected in the Joinery work attached to contracts of this class. A vehicle and plant hire department offers a useful service to the Construction Industry as well as providing the plant necessary for the Company's own contracts and a new garage enables the team of top-line mechanics to give excellent repair and maintenance facilities. J. Wimpenny and Co. Ltd. does not overlook the smaller project, for its Small Works Department will carry out repair and maintenance work, alterations and extensions, painting and decorating, etc.

J. B. BROOKE & SONS LTD.

The Building firm of J. B. BROOKE AND SONS LTD., 264, Manchester Road, Huddersfield, was founded in 1890 by the grandfather of the present directors. The work of this company, who specialise in the building of houses of quality, can be seen throughout the County Borough and include private housing estates at Springwood Hall Gardens, Bradley Park, Benomley and Bank End Lane, Almondbury; York Avenue, Fartown and Deighton. A Borough Architect and various Lecturers in Building at local Colleges are included amongst their house- purchasers. Amongst the public buildings built by this Company are the Ambulance Station at Westbourne Road, the Teachers' Technical Training College, Stages 1 and 2, at Holly Bank Road, Lindley, and the Fire Station, Stage 1, at Upperhead Row. Two fine new schools at Holmfirth and Baildon have been built for the West Riding County Council. During the 1939-45 War, the Company built many secret projects for the War Dept. and the Ministry of Supply and were one of the very few firms in Great Britain selected to fabricate Bailey Bridges for the invasion of the Continent of Europe. Entirely managed by members of the Brooke family ever since the foundation of this firm in 1890, the present Chairman of Directors is Alderman K. Brooke, the grandson of the founder.

F. & A. E. LODGE LTD.

'Lodges the Grocers' was founded in 1921, trading at the Monday Market in Huddersfield, and at other open air markets in the neighbourhood. The popularity of offering high quality goods at lowest prices led to the growth of the firm from Yorkshire into Lancashire, Derbyshire and Cheshire, but even in those pre-war days price cutting was frowned upon by many manufacturers who 'black-listed' the company, and refused to supply them with goods. The War caused many outlets to close down, and it was only when rationing and controlled prices ceased that the Company were able to pursue their policy of price-cutting once more. In 1961, four sons of one of the founders entered the business. All of them had virtually been weaned on Market Stalls and naturally had been very closely associated with the Company all their lives. It was after much consolidation within the Company that they opened their first Supermarket in 1963 at Marsh. Disaster followed three months after its opening when the Supermarket burnt to the ground. However, ten weeks later the store was re-opened and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Smaller units around the town were also opened at Crosland Moor, Lepton and Netherton, all on self-service lines. Lodges Supermarket (Waterloo) Ltd., a subsidiary company was formed in 1965 at Waterloo, and has attained similiar popularity to that of Marsh, not only for its keen prices but for the spacious car park provided for their customers. The company's latest venture will open in 1968, and will be in the premises formerly occupied by Molletts in the Lion Chambers, John William Street. This will be followed by another Supermarket at Meltham. Lodges have prided themselves on catering to all classes of customers, stocking a wide range of goods in varying sizes, with prices to suit all pockets. Newcomers to the town will find Lodges to be a very progressive company, packing many "own" brand products, and they will soon find out that their name is very much a "household" name in the district.

NORTHERN CATERERS LTD.

Northern Caterers Limited was formed in early 1940. In the days of the war period the Government made it a legal responsibility for firms employing above a certain number of personnel to provide a canteen for the workers. It was in order to meet this need that the Subscribers of Northern Caterers Limited formed their Company's objective, i.e., to offer a specialist industrial catering service. In the war years, with all food being stringently rationed, this was no small task, but the Company met with immediate success and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Its present activities include Contract Canteen Catering throughout the length and breadth of the British Isles as well as having interests in Restaurants, Hotel and Transport Cafe catering. In the summer of 1962, Northern Caterers Limited were the first Company to operate Contract Catering on a motorway, and they now operate extensive Catering Services at Strensham on the Bristol-Birmingham Motorway on behalf of thse Kenning Motor Group. The basis of the Canteen Catering Contract is to take over the entire responsibility of a canteen in return for a fixed Management Fee. This fee is agreed by negotiation and usually averages between five and twelve guineas per week according to the size of the canteen unit involved. The Company would undertake the complete operation and management of the canteen and dining rooms, including staffing and supervision, purchase of consumables, payment of wages, cooking, baking and serving of all foodstuffs and beverages, the keeping of all accounting records, P.A.Y.E., National Insurance, etc. Each month a summarised trading account is rendered showing expenditure on consumables, wages and sundry materials against takings, and books and records are available at all times for examination by a client's auditors. Under this scheme profits are returned and losses are charged. Included in our duties would be regular consultations with Management. As a result of the these consultations, the canteen is operated by us to the client's requirements and their decisions, based on our recommendations, are accepted as final. Schemes are prepared and proposals made intirely without obligation or charge. Advice is available on Kitchen Planning and Equipment. The Company is a private one, and therefore a keen, personal and active interest is taken in all its affairs by the Directors. In response to demand a subsidiary Company, i.e. Stephenson Automatic Venders, was formed in 1965. This Company provides vending services to industry for both food and drink, and machines can usually be provided without cost to the client firm. Distribution is available throughout Britain.

HAIGHS & BAIRSTOW (HUDDERSFIELD) LTD.

The wholesale clothing firm of Haighs and Bairstow (Huddersfield) Ltd. was formed in 1959 by the merger of the two old-established Huddersfield Cloth- ing Manufacturers, Bairstow Sons and Co. Ltd. and Haighs Huddersfield Ltd., each of them over a hundred years old. The Company has ten selling branches in various towns and cities in the country, namely Stockton, Wrexham, Bridgend, Cardiff, Nottingham, Bradford, Burnley, Doncaster, Leicester and Hanley. The Company makes outer clothing namely for men, which is marketed under the well-known trade names "Fitzwear" and "Talbot."

At their St. John's Road premises there are modern showrooms where buyers can see a large variety of clothing of all sorts for children, teenagers, men and women. In 1965 the company took over the old-established uniform clothing manufacturing company, James Beever and Co. Ltd., which is now housed at the same address in St. John's Road.

Each of the Companies in the group have been established well over 100 years.

JOHN RADCLIFFE & SONS LTD.

John Radcliffe and Sons Ltd. is an old family business of Building Contractors established in 1802, the present John Radcliffe being the great-great- grandson of the founder. During their 165 years' existance many large undertakings have been carried out for the Huddersfield Corporation, including the Market Hall, Cambridge Road Baths, Phase I. of the Civic Centre, together with a number of schools and other projects. During recent years they have adapted their old skills as masonry contractors to the new techniques of reinforced concrete and modern construction methods, in which sphere many contracts have been carried out both in the private and public sectors covering such works as the new YMCA Building, reservoirs for Batley, Brighouse and Tadcaster Councils, schools for Bradford and the West Riding County Council. Natural stone is still quarried from their quarries at Crosland Hill, a large proportion of which is supplied to the London area as steps, pavings, etc., and has been used in the Tower of London, St. James's Palace, the War Office, 10, Downing Street, and Windsor Castle.

BROWN & THOMAS

Brown and Thomas is a long-established family business dealing with all aspects of painting and decorating. Over the years a sound reputation for excellent work at a reasonable cost has made it one of the largest specialist firms of the kind in the country. In the field of interior decoration they offer a service from spring cleaning and washing to the highest quality decor involving the use of all the latest wall coverings from England and the Continent. They are the first firm in the country to offer complete elimination of cracks appearing in plaster by the application of a process using paint and glass fibre. The painting of industrial premises over the last twenty years has expanded at a terrific rate. Brown and Thomas have equipped themselves fully to meet this expansion and are conversant with every new practice, no project is too technical or specialised, their large staff is capable of dealing promptly with work from the smallest office to the largest factories and are prepared to work through the night or at any other times to meet with wishes of clients. Ecclesiastical work is a speciality and Brown and Thomas have been responsible for the beautification and decoration of many churches not only in Huddersfield and district but throughout the whole of the North of England, where the skill of their designers and craftsmen can be appreciated by all.

JOHN COOKE & SON

Among the pioneers of local industry, the late Mr. John Cooke, the first Chairman of John Cooke and Son (Huddersfield) Limited, Reinforced Concrete, Asphalt and Flooring Specialists, held the distinction of having been practically the means of adding to the range of Huddersfield industries. In 1880 he commenced business at Folly Hall in quite a modest way. He soon, however, turned his practical training to good account, and, by dint of hard work, indomitable energy and determination, coupled with increasing personal care and conscientiousness in the execution of all contracts undertaken, he steadily increased his connection and extended the area of his operation, adding first one department and then another. In 1894 the constant increasing growth and expansion of business made it necessary for him to look out for other premises for

155

Page 158

its further development, which he found in the present commodious premises at Little Royd which, with extensions, made since, now cover an area of about 5,000 sq. yds. To give some idea of the extent and variety of the various operations, Reinforced Concrete structures carried out include precipitation, gas purification and storage tanks of large capacities, bridges, coke and coal bunkers, reservoirs, swimming pools, sewage disposal works and various other classes of buildings. Other departments of this Company comprise road construction and surfacing, rock asphalting for floors, walls and lining of tanks, macadam asphalting from small private drives to large factory and mill yards, tennis courts and insulated coverings to boilers and pipes. Another section is engaged upon various types of specialist floor finishes, which include coloured asphalts, granolithic, and "Flexiglas" seamless covering for offices, canteens and showrooms. For the past fifty years, the firm have specialised in Pre-Cast and Pre- stressed Concrete Floor and Roof construction. Their "Armocrete" Precast Concrete Floor (originally known as the Armoured Tubular Floor) was one of the first hollow floors constructed in pre-cast concrete, and in 1907 satisfied the conditions of the British official fire test. Many hundreds of thousands of square yards of "Armocrete" floors and roofs have been installed in all parts of the country since that date, and no structural failure has ever occurred. This business has been developed on the lines that all contracts whether large or small should receive the same careful consideration and attention. The large number of repeat orders that have already been executed tends to show that work carried out in the past has been, and is still, based on a sound policy. Our subsidiary Company. Furniss and Co., Roofing Contractors, specialise in Patent Glazing, Purpose-made and Standard Metal Windows and Lantern Lights. Asbestos and aluminium roofing and light structural steelwork is also undertaken by them.

WM. MALLINSON & SONS (LOCKWOOD) LTD.

Established as a Private Company in 1852, Wm. Mallinson and Sons (Lockwood) Ltd., have played a leading part in the Building Industry Huddersfield. In 1948 the Company was formed into a Limited Company and since then has gradually expanded its activities to all classes of Building Operations from Private Housing to large Industrial Buildings. One of the more recent contracts has been the alterations and extensions of Huddersfield Corporation's Public Abattoir in Great Northern Street. The Company is well-equipped with modern plant and machinery and employs all the latest time-saving methods in order to give customers a quick and efficient service. Having its own Quarry which is situated at Crosland Hill together with a Stone Yard in Lockwood, the Company is able to produce Crosland Hill Stone for use in the building section of the business and in addition stone is also sold to all parts of Yorkshire as well as places as far away as London and the South of England. Although situated in Huddersfield the Company operates in many parts of the West Riding of Yorkshire and has been engaged in the building of Schools, Factories, Extensions to Libraries, and Kilns for the production of earthenware Drainpipes, etc. No matter how big or how small the job or contract Messrs. Mallinsons try to give perfect satisfaction and hope to continue to serve Huddersfield in a way worthy of its reputation as a go-ahead community.

HEYWOOD-HELLIWELL LTD.

As one of the country's leading manufacturers of aluminium products for the building and shopfitting industries, Heywood-Helliwell Ltd., of Huddersfield, are also playing a leading role in current moves to establish British and European standards for window performance and testing.

The Company's Chairman and Managing Director, Mr. Bryan R. Scholes, a grandson of the founder, makes frequent visits to associated firms in the United States, and has first-hand knowledge of the problems encountered and the solutions found, when American standards for aluminium doors and windows were laid down.

Experience in this field was one reason why Mr. Scholes, a former President of Huddersfield Chamber of Commerce, last year became the first President of the newly-formed Aluminium Window Association (A. W.A.), whose chief aims include the setting up of British standards covering the manufacture, installation and performance of aluminium windows; and the maintenance of these standards by a system or regular inspection.

At the same time, through its parent body, the British Metal Window Association, the A.W.A. is also concerned with the much wider problems of establishing standards acceptable throughout Europe.

Heywood-Helliwell welcomes the introduction of such standards, for strict quality control in the production of high-class products has been a hallmark of the company since the last Century.

Founded in 1890 by William Henry Heywood, the Huddersfield patent glazing firm of W. H. Heywood and Co. developed in 20 years into one of the country's largest patent roof glazing contractors. They were granted the Royal Warrant in 1915, became a private limited company nine years later, and then moved into a period of intense activity, during which branch offices were opened in London and Manchester, and in other main centres in Britain.

As the demand for industrial glazing continued to grow, modifications and improvements of existing products were continually being made: aluminium was tested and approved for the manufacture of the glazing bar; the design range was increased; double glazing was introduced. Heywood's were always able to meet new architectural needs as the occasion arose - when, for instance, continuous vertical glazing began to replace featureless brick walls, or when the trend towards flat roofs demanded the streamlining of rooflights into lower, neater, more economical and efficient units.

Today, patent glazing is only one of several major business activities at Heywood-Helliwell - but the demand for products in this field continues at a high level, and the firm supplies and fixes hundreds of thousands of super feet of glazing every year.

The present structure of the Heywood-Helliwell Group was laid down in 1959, when W. H. Heywood and Co. Ltd. and their old-established rivals, Helliwell and Co. Ltd., of Brighouse, amalgamated into one composite organisation. Since then another period of intense business expansion has seen the opening of new design and production facilities at the Company's headquarters at Bayhall Works. And in 1968 further developments will include the setting up at Field Mills, Leeds Road, Huddersfield, of a comprehensive research and testing department and a large training school, to replace the present facilities at Bayhall.

The Company now manufactures aluminium doors, entrance units, windows, rooflights, curtain walling systems and facia cladding sections for general

architectural use; and doors and shopfront sections for the shopfitting trade. In addition, a range of purpose-made steel windows is also produced.

Research is continually taking place, both to improve or modify existing lines and to develop new products. On the manufacturing side, the introduction in 1960 of a modern anodising plant marked a major step forward in the history of an organisation that has made many giant strides since Mr. William Henry Heywood and his Victorian colleagues glazed their first factory roof.

NETHERWOOD DALTON (PRINTERS) OF HUDDERSFIELD

Automation and original enterprise have combined, during three generations of the Netherwood family, to play an important part in the rapid development of this Huddersfield firm of printers.

They produce a wide variety of print which ranges from International works

of reference such as the "Jane's" series " All the World's Aircraft," " Fighting Ships " and " World Railways " - books with over three thousand illustrations in each - Educational Text Books, Trade Catalogues and Advertising sales

literature to the one thousand and one jobs that are the incessant trumpet of trade, learning and living.

In addition Netherwood Dalton have developed over many decades an extensive specialised Textiles pattern department which coupled with the highest degree of printing skill, produces prestige pattern bunches and other point of sales aids for manufactures, clothiers, merchants and various colour specialists which assist the sales of British goods in countries from the Americas to the Far East, as well as in the home trade.

They were amongst the first concerns in Great Britain to experiment with high frequency P.V.C. welding and introduce it into their pattern section.

From the original idea through the lay-out and the artist's sketches to the finished print; from original manuscripts to the bound books; from cloth direct from looms to the Tailors'® bunches; from silks, linings, woven fabrics, knitting yarns and rug fabrics into the finished pattern leaflets and cards, these are some of the unique services Netherwood Dalton gives to industry.

HUDDERSFIELD BUILDING SOCIETY

The Society was established in 1864 and since its establishment over 100 years ago the Huddersfield Building Society has earned the reputation of being one of the soundest societies in the building society movement.

Since its early days the Society has set its standards high and has continued to maintain those standards. It has grown over the years from strength to strength and by the end of last year its total assets exceeded £70m. The Society has continued to make progress during this year and by the end of this month its total assets will exceed £84m., which assets have effectively doubled in size over the last six years.

A branch organisation of twenty-two offices through the British Isles was supplemented on July 1, 1967, when the Vigilant Building Society, having assets of £2m., merged with the Huddersfield, providing branch offices at Croydon and Sutton in Surrey. These branch offices, together with over 320 agencies, provide the

159

Page 162

nationwide network necessary for first-class service to members and depositors. A new branch office in Bradford was opened on December 27, 1967.

Mr. Denis K. Macnaught, CA., was appointed General Manager of the Huddersfield Building Society on June 1, 1967, in succession to Mr. Andrew Stewart, C.B.E., CA., who retired after 38 years' service as General Manager. Mr. Stewart, a past Chairman of the Building Socieities Association, is Vice President of the Society and continues to serve on the Board.

Mr. Macnaught, who is 41 years of age, was educated at Shawlands Academy, Glasgow, Glasgow High School, and Glasgow University. After service in the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Marines, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant and then entered private practice with A. N. Macleod and Co., Chartered Accountants, Inverness. He joined the Halifax Building Society as Assistant Accountant in 1955 and became Accountant in 1960. Mr. Macnaught has been an Examiner in Accounting for the Building Societies Institute, and a member of the Study Group on accounting methods and electronics. Mr. Macnaught is a member of the Executive, and Honorary Secretary, of the Yorkshire County Association of Building Societies.

The Society has always taken a pride in its service, and will continue to improve and adapt its service to meet the needs of investors and borrowers in the future.

JARRATT, PYRAH & ARMITAGE LTD.

For almost 200 years the firm of Jarratt, Pyrah and Armitage Ltd. and its predecessors, Jere Kaye and Co., has supplied timber to the town and district.

The sawing and planing mills are equipped with modern machinery capable of turning out a first-class production of sawn and machined timber to suit the requirements of trade and industry, and a timber preservation plant is available to cope with requirements in this field.

Modern methods of mechanical handling and adequate transport facilities enable them to offer a prompt and efficient service to customers.

Extensive under-cover storage accommodation ensures that supplies are in theright condition for use, and, in particular, Quebec Yellow Pine, for pattern making, receives special attention on this point.

Large stocks of Softwood are stored in Hull, Goole and West Harlepool, etc. Consequent upon becoming members of "The Southern Group" in 1966, the company is expanding its field of operation and to this end acquired in 1967 the

adjoining premises of J. Holdroyd and Co. Ltd., at Seed Hill. These premises are used exclusively for the newly-formed sheet materials and door department.

PREF A CE

This supplement provides a directory of members of the Chamber and of their products or services; it is hoped that it will prove of use to persons or companies requiring goods, or services in the areas covered by the Chamber's membership. It contains basic information about members who are listed both in alphabetical order of names and under classified trade headings, together with a list of trade names used by companies in the principal lists. An index of trade

headings appzars on Page 171.

A small number of members have requested to be excluded from this directory, and consequently their particulars do not appear. In the case, however, of professional members who suggested that their inclusion might contravene professional etiquette, it was judged that the purpose of this directory was for information and not for advertisement, and they have been included, following the

example of directories produced by many other Chambers of Commerce.
