The origins of the sheep skin factory

The origins of building date back to the 1800s. It was originally a sheepskin tannery known as Morlands. In 1870 a new partnership between James Clark, his son William, and John Morland (James’s son-in-law), was formed, bringing new capital into the business. The firm, Clark, Son and Morland, went into production in 1871 with 65 employees. 

In 1925 the firm became a public company. Overshoes, designed to be worn over motorist’s ordinary shoes, were a popular product.
