The factory was situated on the estate alongside the Dutch barn in the familyís old Home Farm buildings and initially employed seven people. Childrenís socks were the main product line. Later menís socks were produced and in 1958 the company gave their address as New Mill, Leicester Road and they were in business into the 1980ís. Pictured are a pair of the companies socks and the New Mill factory.
