Old pickle company in kelham island

Recommended Posts

I have a colleague whose family once owned a pickle business in Kelham Island. They made picalilli amongst other things. Would anyone know of an old pickle business in Sheffield that is no longer trading? The name may have been waterhouse, although that may not be the name of the company business.

Hi David.  There was a pickled onion factory on wood lane Stannington.  My nan used to work there . I don't think the company exists anymore. But don't know what it was called.

The Kelly's directories I have dated 1951 to 1965 show "S. Waterhouse" as a pickle manufacturer in Russell Street, and the alphabetical section shows that the factory was on the corner of Russell Street and Kelham Street, near to Kelham Island. Here is a link to a scan taken from the classified section of the 1954 directory. https://i.postimg.cc/8PWhMTPX/Pickles.jpg

Waterhouse's works was next to the White Hart but this was actually on Russell Street (a continuation of Spring Street). Here is a scan from the 1954 directory: 001.jpg

and here's a 1950s map:

It was Fowlers. Cunningham was the brand they owned at the time.
