History of H Blyth & Son

The Blyths first started trading in 1947. Sidney Blyth converted pigsties at our existing premises into a workshop.

 

Hedworth Blyth

 

Primary work in those days was hand forging "Norfolk Pattern self sharpening hoe blades" for sugar beet weed control, a product which has recently ceased due to the retirement of Hedworth Blyth at 80+ years old. The emergence of chemical weed controls had seen a decline in demand for the hoe blade.

 

During the 1950's, making and repairing zig zag harrows was a major aspect of work.

 The 1960's and 70's saw the introduction of rear mounted tractor implements. These were manufactured at our Honingham premises.

1974 also saw the Blyths exhibiting at the Royal Norfolk Show, a practice which continued until 2000.

Whilst concentrating mainly on the agricultural aspect during this time, another niche developed in the building industry for gates, railings, balconies etc. We diversified and followed demand.... which brings us today, still deeply involved in agriculture, the building trade and the home.

A major project completed in 2006 for a Norwich apartment development saw us busy for several months supplying, and fitting "Juliet" balconies, staircase hand rails, railings and numerous structural members and fabrications.

Our name and products are widespread in farming, industry, and the building trade, throughout Norfolk and its boundaries.
