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.

Nichols manhole just off Millpond Street (16-3-06)

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.
