Comment: Thanks for an interesting site about an interesting company, I was born in Kingham which was the home of Lainchbury and Sons who took over the manufacture of Roberts Elevators after Roberts decline. I worked in the Lainchbury factory for a time and My uncle worked there all his life from age 15 until Lainchburys closed, he actually worked on building the Roberts elevator for Lainchburys. Lainchburys also made their own model of elevator one being the Superlyte and I do have a collection of heavy iron components from the superlyte (inc the wheels and gears) displayed outside my workshop at home, I rescued them from a local farmer who broke up a Superlyte elevator. I have a lainchburys brochure with pictures of Lainchburys Roberts Premier elevator together with prices.

Comment: It was quite interesting to discover your site and look at the old photographs. John Roberts (father of Edwin and Henry) was my maternal 5th-great-uncle by marriage.

Comment: I pick up long lost plough shares (tips) sometimes when walking the Chilterns, and noticed one has Roberts Patent on it. A search led me to your very interesting site, I was not previously aware of the firm Roberts.

Comment: While researching a wheel hub I had just acquired I was pleased to find this excellent site. The hub has now returned home! Pleasure to meet Michael and learn more about this long lost foundry, how important this must have been to the local economy
