Clay Pit Lane, Hepworth and Son

Clay Pit Lane, Hepworth and Son
1891 View looks onto the premises of Joseph Hepworth and Son. Hepworth's clothing company began in 1865. This view shows the Providence Works on Clay Pit Lane, designed by H.A. Cheers. By 1905 Hepworths had 143 shops. Hepworth's later became Next. These premises are currently being extended in the same style possibly for conversion to apartments.

Around 1955 I was working as a painter for Marsh Jones and Cribb at this building, I was working in a bosons chair painting the top window's and fall pipes, I had scaffold poles in a triangle weighted down with 56lb weights, one time when moving the poles I was too near the wall with the pole and as I dropped it down on the top of the wall I cut the end of my finger off, I picked the finger end off the wall put it in my mouth and walked over to the Infirmary were the doctors replaced it as there was no damage to the bone. I was back at work next day, no sick pay back in the day's
