PETITION AGAINST INJUNCTION THREATENING CLOSURE OF STONE BREAKING MACHINERY AT LLANYMYNECH
9th APRIL 1895
The undersigned residents in and near Llanymynech have heard, with much concern of an injunction being threatened against Messrs. Savin and Co. Ltd., to compel them to cease working the extensive Stone Breaking Machinery recently erected at a considerable outlay of money.
The injunction is threatened on the ground of the Machinery being a nuisance on account of the noise made.
We the undersigned, hereby testify that the machinery, when in motion, is not in our opinion a nuisance, but rather a great blessing to the neighbourhood and community generally because of the large amount of labour employed, and we hereby beg to express our wish and desire for the welfare of the undertaking.
12 of the 60 petitioners, all from Llanymynech, are listed below;
E Evans and Son - Grocers
Edwyn Fox Davies - Draper, Grocer and Corn Dealer
