Guest and Chrimes was founded during 1857/8 as a joint venture between John Guest and Richard Chrimes. The works opened by the River Don at Rotherham. Since previous repors on the site the walkways pictured have gone and some of the site has been demolised. A lot of the site has boarded up windows so not much light to play with in some bits.
Among the principal products manufactured by Guest and Chrimes were: Bateman, Moore's and Chrimes' Patent Hydrants or Fire Cocks, Improved Sluice Cocks, Chrimes' Patent High-pressure Single and Double Loose-valve and Screw-down Cocks, Pilbrow's Patent Water-Waste Preventer, Siemens' Patent Balance Water Meter, Bell and Chrimes' Patent Service Box Valve, and Guest and Chrimes' Registered Service Box. Fire-extinguishing Apparatus of every description, as hand or delivery pipes, jets, jet and spreader, to distribute water in imitation of rain; hose couplings; leather, India rubber, canvas hose, coupling wrenches, etc. Sanitary Vessels, Wash-hand Basins, Urinals, Closet Pans, Plug Basins, Hoppers, etc. of Ridgway's and the best Staffordshire make, and general plumbers' and gas-fitters' products. Guest and Chrimes remained in Rotherham until 1999 when production was moved to Derbyshire. Visited with Mutley.
