This picture of a 50th Anniversary Celebration at Stockton Castings was taken from a booklet commemorating the history of foundries on Teesside. There is an even earlier set of pictures from 1947.
I was loaned a copy by Mr Alex Fleming of the company, following a visit by members of the Newcomen Society for the Study of Industrial History and Engineering, on 17th July 2018. So Stockton Castings have now been going for over 70 years. Our members were very impressed by the way the foundry is now laid out, to ease manhandling and ensure that the castings are of the highest integrity.
