"Tytherington Stone Co., Tytherington nr. Thornbury, Glos.,
7-plank wagon with Authentic stone load, No.39"
"Howell Hardwick inherited an estate near Thornbury in 1880 and began operating quarries around Tytherington, initially as Hardwick & Co. The name changed to Tytherington Stone Co. in the mid-1890’s. The business acquired a number of new and used mineral wagons between 1898 and 1914 and was linked to the LMS branch at Thornbury. Later the business was absorbed into the Teign Valley Granite Co, eventually all becoming a constituent part of the current Hanson Aggregates. Although mothballed for many years, blasting at Tytherington Quarry restarted in March 2019. This wagon comes with an Authentic load of Tytherington limestone, supplied by ATTWOOD AGGREGATES"
