Clayton & Shuttleworth was an Iron Founder & Agricultural engineering firm set up in Lincoln, to manufacture Iron pipes, Steam (traction) engines and agricultural machinery.


HistoryEdit

The history of the company goes back to 1842, when Nathaniel Clayton and Joseph Shuttleworth set up an engineering and iron-founding business in Lincoln. The firm began by making iron pipes, but the business soon branched out into steam-powered farming machinery. The company continued to prosper until the First World War and by 1914 it was operating from three factories: the Stamp End Works, the nearby Titanic Works and the Abbey Works.

During the First World War the company produced huge quantities of military equipment, including howitzers and aircraft. The Abbey Works was used to produce Handley Page and Vickers bombers and the area to the east of the factory was laid out as an airfield for testing.

After the war the Abbey Works was used to produce railway rolling stock and in 1920 a new company called Clayton Wagons Ltd was formed to handle this side of the business. Unfortunately, various financial difficulties soon beset the company and the Titanic Works was sold to Clayton Dewandre Ltd. In 1929 Clayton Wagons also ceased trading and the Abbey Works was eventually acquired by Smith's Stamping Works of Coventry and renamed the Smith-Clayton Forge.
