BARFORD & PERKINS

Late 19th century makers. In the 1890s they produced the "Beatrice" sidewheel machine and the "New Clipper" roller mower. In 1902 they pioneered the Wansbrough Patent method of altering the height of cut, fitting it to their "Godiva" range of mowers. The company was based at Queen St. Peterborough and became Agricultural & General Engineers (AGE) in 1920. See also Nene Engineering.
