Charles Case Tan Yard

Dilton Marsh Local History Society, together with Westbury Heritage Society and Westbury Family History Group, are  looking into the history of the Charles Case Tannery Co., which operated in Westbury Leigh from 1890 to 1983.

The Westbury Heritage Centre, has available a notice board from the tannery, dating from around 1925 with the following names.

G.G. Hoare
J .W. S. Bailey
F.W.Willet
F. Hickley
E.J. Brighting
E.J.. Brighting Jnr.

Should any family members of these named persons, still reside in our local area and be willing to provide us with any details as to their role within the Charles Case Tannery we would be most grateful.

Any such information would be employed to support our proposed exhibition and display, proposed for later this year.
