    Great site mate, have lived in mansfield all my life, such a shame to see this site go. Had a look around what was left of it a few days ago, basically most of it is rubble apart from the main clock tower building which is falling to pieces.

    I was born in Mansfield and I now run the Cumbria Clock Company which specialises in all aspects of work connected with public clocks ( )
    I would be more then happy to attend free of charge and without obligation and supply the relative report and quotations regarding the restoration of the clock.

    I remember doing the maintainence in the 1980’s early 1990’s for Greybeam. I have some fond memories of working at MB.

    Hi, I note an old Metal Box friend who gave me my first introduction to Soudronic welders back in 1981 has commented on your site. Could you possibly give me Keith Skermer’s email address, or get him to contact me at my email adddress. Would love to catch up with him.

    I have very fond memories of Metal Box, and looking at some of the photos brings a lot of them flooding back. I think it’s quite sad that the old Rock Valley site was demolished, but then we all have to move on.
    I would love to meet up with some of the people I was fortunate to have known, especially the guys from Slitting where I worked for so many years.
    Kind regards.
