Established in 1837 in Pudsey, Yorkshire, the family first travelled to the South West when they went to Cornwall in the early 1900's to build the tin mine chimneys.
Once these were completed the family decided to stay in the area and moved to Somerset to build the coal mine chimneys.
Some of our chimneys can still be seen in Cornwall although many were built and demolished within one generation due to the speed at which the industry was growing and changing.
At the moment the fourth, fifth and sixth generation of our family work side by side in the current business. Oscar is 14 months (and just at the moment a little too young to join the business!), but it is hoped that he will take the reigns as the seventh generation of Dawsons and take the business forward as his father and grandfather did.
