About Hazeldines Foundary Station


Hazeldine (or Hazledine) & Co. was set up in Bridgnorth by three brothers of the Hazeldine family — John (1760-1810), Robert (1768-1837) and Thomas (1771-1842). The ironworks was located on a 0.8ha site between the east bank of the River Severn north of the bridge (Bridge Street, now the B4363) and Mill Street.

At first the foundry produced agricultural machinery. Under John Hazeldine’s leadership the company gained a countrywide reputation for the quality of its castings. Though declared bankrupt in 1797, he reached some accommodation with his creditors and patented a mill for rolling metal bars in 1798.
