Notes:
Laycock’s have sadly but understandably left their old premises in the centre of Keighley and now occupy a modern building with extensive warehousing. Although a supplier of engineering steels to the engineering trades they are willing to deal in small quantities with a very nominal cutting charge. Service is always good and the staff helpful.  Many model engineers use Laycock’s as a source of steel.
