Back in 1894, Henry Peacock & John Binnington started their agricultural engineering business, the same year that the Manchester Ship Canal, Tower Bridge and the Blackpool Tower were all opened.
Such feats of engineering were in stark contrast to the farming world that Henry Peacock grew up in. The way we farmed was different, things were more manual. The newly formed company, originally trading in farm implements, were there at the introduction of reapers and self binders. The start of the mechanisation of the harvest that is in itself in such contrast to the huge automated combines of today being sold by Henry’s grandson, Michael Peacock, the third generation and current Chairman of Peacock & Binnington.
A Great Wee article to work with, many thanks.

My family and I have dealt with Peacock & Binnington’s for over 50 years, which in itself, speaks volumes.
