Description:An interior view of the foundry at Bamfords' Leighton Works, Pinfold Street, Uttoxeter.

Bamfords was founded in 1871 by Henry Bamford and made water pumps, taps and agricultural machinery at their Leighton Ironworks off Pinfold lane, Uttoxeter. Joseph Cyril Bamford split off from the Bamford company in 1945 to set up what has become known as JCB: J C Bamford Excavators Ltd. Bamfords went into liquidation in 1980, but then in 1989 JCB bought the site in Pinfold Street and produced earthmoving equipment there until 2008.
