Nichols & Sons Foundry
Ross-on-Wye had several other smaller foundries, including Nichols & Sons who are known to have made items such as rain channels and manhole covers. These can still be seen on the streets of Ross.
Here we see a manhole cover that I noticed by accident just off Millpond Street. "Nichols Ross" can just be made out across the top of the cover.
When looking along Millpond Street, there is a noticable hump in the road half way along its length, just outside the entrance to J.S. Carpets. I am told that there is a disused culvert there and it maybe that this drain is access to this or a feed to it.
Other Examples of Nichols & Sons work
There are very few examples of Nichols & Sons work around Ross-on-Wye, and these are a few more examples I have found.
