    Unfortunately, Bulldog tools moved their forge to India in 2013. They do still fit the handles in England. Very sad.

    • Lauren at Make it British on April 27, 2017 at 9:13 am

      Charles thanks for letting us know, what a shame! We were not aware of this. We have removed Bulldog from this list now so as not to mislead anyone. Thanks again for the information.

        https://www.chillingtontoolsonline.co.uk/ look as though they use their own UK forge to make garden tools and builders’ stuff like mattocks

        • Paul Gordon on July 4, 2017 at 1:14 pm

          Sadly not. I thought just that, from their website, but they have just informed me they are forged in Thailand.

    A small number of bulldog tools are still made in Wigan I believe the grass rake and hand trowel and fork are just some of them still made in Wigan but best check with bulldog.
