    A historically important site, but quite confusing at the same time.

    Also on site were North West Flanges and North West Forgemasters, subsidiary companies of 'National Forge Company Holdings Inc.', the owners of Mitchell Shackleton.

    The remnants of Gardner Engines (more later) were also there.

    Onto the pictures...

    Like I said above, Gardner Engines used to be based around here somewhere, I think now demolished and redeveloped. There was one surviving shed though...
