Metalbox Memories – Mr. Terry Barrows

Posted by Olly April 29th, 2019


We recently received an email from an ex Metalbox employee from Rhymney in Wales.

He has asked;

Hello. I am trying to contact Mr. Terry Barrows, a former employee at Mansfield, who I had the distinct pleasure of working with, at Massilly UK, Rhymney, Gwent. I hope that you have contact details, so that I can resume my friendship with Terry. Thank you.

If you know Terry or are in fact Terry himself, pop a comment below and ill arrange for this chap to make contact.

If you want to find someone or have pictures, stories or information about Mansfield Metalbox then comment below and share your story.

Posted by Olly April 14th, 2016


Jude from Sound Delivery contacted us as she was part of a series aimed at capturing the stories from Mansfield Metalbox workers from the 1940’s to the present day. It is an amazing series, and ill drip feed the episodes onto the website so you can hear all the fascinating stories from ex workers at the infamous Rock Valley Factory.

Big thanks to Sound Delivery and Mansfield Museum.
