The Ironmen of Leamington

9780956277367I was joint author of this book with Martin Green who is the chairman of the Warwickshire Industrial Archaeology Society (WIAS). The book was a joint venture by WIAS and the Leamington History Group (LHG), of which I am a committee member.

The “Ironmen” of the title were the Iron-founders and Allied Traders in Royal Leamington Spa from 1800 to 1900. There were more Ironmen than you might suspect and the range and quantity sold of their iron products was surprising to us authors.

This book has 202 pages, is illustrated throughout, often in colour.
The cover price is £18.
It was published under the name of Shay Books which I manage.

It can be ordered from the Secretary of LHG at
