I was recently contacted by photographer Steve Lancefield, who is in the process of visiting various British factories and took these of the Alfred Sargent factory in Rushden, Northampton. I’ve visited many in Northampton myself, but never Sargents. And while Goodyear machines don’t really change, I loved the personal and colour shots Steve took. 

Looking forward to the book, Steve.

Steve wishes to thank Chay Cooper for his hospitality
