Bulldog Tools have been made at Clarington Forge, Wigan, since 1780. They have the only full time forge still making spades and forks within the UK.
Their forged garden spades and forks have heads made from a single piece of steel. The steel is a unique specification which results in exceptionally strong tool heads with the flexibility to absorb all the shock and pressure of hard work without distorting or breaking. The tools are built to last. Their value is in their longevity and it's why it's worth making an investment in a Bulldog Tool.
Bulldog Tools is the only UK manufacturer of garden tools. They are proud of the fact that they make all of their forged tools in the UK. They employ over 60 staff at their forge in Wigan and make more than 1500 tools per day. It's quite common for several generations of the same family to have worked for the company, with some employees tracing their family ties back four generations.
