Men of Trent – The Story of the Nottingham Winch by Stefan Duma

This book will explain the reasons why they were made in Nottingham and not elsewhere. Starting with reels from the early 1800s, the reader will see the biggest collection of iron-pillared clamp winches ever, along with possibly the earliest centre winch to surface so far.

Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 full-colour photographs detailing how the reels were made and their variations, it will pinpoint not only the date of the invention of the spring latch but for the first time, identify the individual behind it.

Hardback: 204 pages & includes author’s signature card.

This book makes everything that has so far been written on the Nottingham winch either obsolete or incorrect.
