Description:Bamfords mowers, side rakes, hay elevators and other agricultural machinery in the goods yard at Uttoxeter station, ready for shipping.

Bamfords was founded in Uttoxeter in 1871 by Henry Bamford and made water pumps, taps and agricultural machinery at the Leighton Works on Pinfold Street. 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 as part of their Heavy Products division until 2008.
