Here we have reprinted a number of articles which were originally published in the Wilkinson Society Journal and relate to the ironmaster John Wilkinson.  

These provide a valuable source of information.  There is however one word of caution.  The articles were written some years ago so some of the information which they contain may now be out of date.  More recent research may also contradict some of the facts and invalidate the conclusions reached.

For you convenience these articles should open in a separate page.
