Directors: Dale and John Harrison
~ History ~
Our family firm was established in 1880 by our great
grandfather - Enoch Harrison. The firm was originally
based in Cross Hills but moved to Cononley in the 1930's.
Enoch's son, Stow, then took over the business followed by
his sons Frank, Enoch and Arthur. In 1988 the firm
then passed down to the fourth generation - Mike, Dale and
John Harrison who all trained as apprentice craftsmen.
Mike retired in 2008. The fifth generation of
Harrisons are also working in the firm.
