BARROW,HEPBURN & GALE.

Postby kiwi » Mon Feb 13, 2017 10:40 pm

Hepburn and Gale was started by John Hepburn who moved to Bermondsey in the 1770s John Hepburn purchased three tanneries in Long Lane. In 1901 Hepburn and Gale moved to premises in Grange Road and two years later merged with Ross & Co to form Hepburn, Gale and Ross. In 1920 Hepburn Gale and Ross merged with Samuel Barrow and Brother to form Barrow, Hepburn and Gale, an incorporated public Company.
By 1900 the company owned four tanneries in The Grange, Grange Road, Spa Road and one in Redhill, and warehouses in Weston Street, Maze Pond and St Thomas’ Street. Able to trace a heritage back over 200 years, Barrow Hepburn and Gale closed their operations in Bermondsey in the 1970s.
The brand of Barrow Hepburn and Gale still survives and holds royal warrants for the supply and repair of ministerial dispatch cases and the manufacture of purses for the distribution of Maundy Money. They also restore historical items made from leather.
