Armfields Engineering Company, Stuckton. An iron foundry has stood on this site since the 1770s. The necessary sand iron core, charcoal, and moulding sand were obtained locally. It is said, but not verified, that the first portable steam traction engines were made here in the early C.19. The company still manufactures and installs mill machinery.
