    This was where the Tams company began, at Longton's crown works. It went on to run 5 factories, Crown Works, Atlas Works, Blyth Works (see report) Sutherland Works and a warehouse at the former Monarch flatware site.

    The company went in to recievership, and then a management buyout created "tams group" from the former John Tams Empire. This lasted a very short time, and now all 5 works are closed.

    Two views of the Blyth works, the latter after the works had been almost doubled.
