The R.A. Lister works have produced a huge range of different products throughout its lifetime. After formation in 1867, the company started out making agricultural implements
The company also expanded into other areas at the beginning of the 20th Century, notably sheep shearing machinery, milking machines and milk churn and barrel making. The latter were made in Howard’s Mill which became known as the “Churn Works”. An interesting offshoot of the Churn Works was related to the wooden offcuts which were used to make a whole variety of ornamental furniture covering everything from garden seats, plant tubs, bellows and small coopercraft items, some of which were made from the timber of old battleships. Apart from use within the home they often formed part of the furnishings on large luxurious ocean liners
