One thought on “Sir Samuel Sadler Statue, Middlesbrough

  1. Working next door to what was Carless Chemicals in North Ormesby, it was interesting to hear some of the older boye there (who used to sneak into our Teesside Bridge canteen) still called their place ‘Sadler’s) and on that link I have always wondered in Sadler’s Transport (who specialise in tankers) are in some way related to the old boy.
