Harry Brearley born 1871 in Sheffield lived at Old Whittington. He was the inventor of ‘rustless’ (stainless) steel.
Whilst much is known about Harry his son Leo had quite a story to tell about his internment during WW1.
This article from the Derbyshire Courier 3 July 1915 documents Leo’s internment and eventual escape.
