1919 Clayton & Shuttleworth Thrashing Machine

This thrashing machine (worksl number 47302) was dispatched from Clayton & Shuttleworth’s Stamp End Works in Lincoln on the 6th August 1919 to the Swimbridge Threshing Company of North Devon. It was worked until 1960 and then lay derelict until it was purchased by David Solomon in 1976.

Over a period of six years, it was stripped to a bare frame and rebuilt. During the paint removal, evidence of lining out was found suggesting it may have been a show model. It was donated to the Shuttleworth Trust by David Solomon in 2018.
