Hurll, Young & Co Heathfield

This example is in the possession of Ian Suddaby.

Found in Edinburgh on the site of an Iron Foundry built in about 1867.

Ian states – An almost complete 8″ internal diameter glazed pipe made by Hurll, Young & Co at Heathfield Fireclay Works near Glasgow. This pipe was shortened in antiquity so it could fit at a bend in the run of pipes. That’s a shame but pipes like this are almost never recovered anywhere near whole.

John Hurll and John Young parted company in 1874 but this pipe is very well made and glazed. As can be seen in the second photo, the internal grooves in the collar are finely cut but the matching grooves on the spigot have been lost. Early pipes don’t have these grooves.

Heathfield Fireclay Works, Heathfield, Lanarkshire.
