William Lane Foundry

When Cheryl from William Lane Foundry contacted me in 2017, the historian in me was instantly intrigued. Established in 1862, William Lane is Middlesbrough’s oldest surviving foundry. Unfortunately, this fascinating provenance was neither reflected nor celebrated in their previous website.

With claims to fame, such as working on the Tornado and Puffing Billy steam engines and providing custom parts for the James Bond Lotus from The Spy who Loved Me, William Lane Foundry had a lot of stories to tell.

Their new website, which I completed in late 2017, rightly now revives that history and was (and continues to be) one of the most interesting projects I have worked on.
