Hartleys Jam Factory
Hartleys Jam Factory
The ruin of Hartleys Jam Factory built in 1886, twelve years after William Hartley made his first jam at Aintree. The factory employed 1,200 workers, many of whom took advantage of the purpose built houses let on the hire-purchase scheme, a similar project to that of Lord Leverhulme in Port Sunlight. Hartley was a philanthropist who pioneered profit-sharing, pensions, health service and recreational facilities for his employees as well as giving huge sums of money to charity.
