From Grenades to Griddles tells the true story of Chamberlin and Hill Ltd, now Chamberlin Plc, a Group of companies in the West Midlands. Starting a year before their first foundry opened, the author follows the development of the business right from the beginning to the present day. The book takes the reader on a fascinating journey of how a traditional enterprise has managed not only to survive, but to thrive in a modern Britain. With original photos from the company archives, along with personal memories of key players in the business, From Grenades to Griddles offers a unique exploration of the 130 years of the foundry’s operation in the wider context of the cultural, political and economic life of the United Kingdom.
