The Lilleshall Company Collection consists of business and property documents spanning over 200 years. The Company’s business over this period involved the mining of coal, limestone, and ironstone, as well as the manufacture of heavy clay products, heavy and light engineering, iron and steel making and finishing. Most documents relate to property for Gower family lands in the Lilleshall area or that which is now within the boundaries of Telford. Many different families and other companies appear in these documents, either as tenants of Lilleshall Company owned property or as contracted parties.
