The original Avonside Engine Company was based in St Philips, Bristol, and founded in 1837 as Henry Stothert and Company. This firm had got into financial difficulties and was liquidated in the 1880s. A new company was formed using the Avonside name as the Avonside Locomotive Works, It ailed again in the 1930’s and was one of the locomotive companies who’s designs were taken over by Hunslet Engine Co.
Note - there might be a few builders in this list that are not in Leeds as they built Leeds designed locos as sub contractors.
