Details

7 Plank Wagon in the livery of Edward Eastwood, Chesterfield, No. 2.

Edward Eastwood established his works in 1863 following a spell of employment at the Manor House Wagon Works in Long Eaton. Having gained sufficient experience in the trade, Eastwood 's first works were located on a five acre site adjacent to the Midland Railway's line through Chesterfield. Subsequent works were situated at Ambergate, Nottingham, Peterborough, Staveley and Blackwell, along with a site at Toton sidings. Following Edwards death in 1910, the business passed to his third child, George Albert Eastwood. George left the company to his niece, Blanche Eastwood, following his death in 1934 and following her death in 1963 the wagon works were passed on to her nephew, a Mr. George Hooton, who liquidated the company and incorporated the remaining assets into his own metals business. The great canal and railway engineer Thomas Telford was a cousin of Edward's and his railway works prospered as a direct result of Telford's engineering work.

Edward Eastwood has several other business interests, he provided the financial backing for his nephew Edwin Sampson Moore to found the Midland Vinegar Company who created the world famous HP Sauce and later became HP foods. He also had stakes in a shipping company and a manufacturing outfit that produced machinery for the Lace industry.
