A Tour Around Hemphill Castings, Bromford

I went on a visit with Ian Stenson, to Hemphill Castings, which is run by Terry Knowles, and who inherited the foundry from his uncle. On the day we visited Terry showed us round and Kevin was working making aluminium castings.

The aluminium is heated by gas in the furnace, the metal placed inside a crucible which can resist the incredibly high temperatures, the office mannequin, below, showed us an unused crucible.

Kevin making parts for lights that will be sent to France when complete.
These photographs were taken by Ian Stenson, who has been working taking photographs for the project- you can view more of his work on his website.
