Durham Foundry History

A foundry was established on the present site in about 1870; operated by Truswells, a firm of heating engineers, to provide the radiator and boiler parts they needed. About 1885, the Truswells sold the foundry to Charles Butcher, who may possibly have been their foreman. He ran it until 1900 when, on his retirement, he sold it to Arthur Naylor and his brother-in-law, Charles Oxley. They converted it into a limited company, Charles Butcher & Co. Ltd.; on September 19th 1900.
