Walkley Clogs is a clog factory where the great British
clog is manufactured in its entirety.
The company was started by Frank Walkley in 1946.
The main styles manufactured at that time were the
Safety boot clog, Derby, Gibson and the Bar clog.
With slipon styles being produced much later.
In 1978 Frank Walkley bought out the famous Maude
clog sole works in Hebden Bridge, a company that at
its hey day had over 100 employees that turned
nothing but clog soles!
Walkey Clogs still uses the old machines for turning
the wooden clog soles, and manufacturing the irons. The clog making skills used are
those skills that have been passed down from generations of Walkley Clogs clog
Many of our older clog customers will remember Gordon and Nelson real lovely
characters, and John who only recently retired a few years ago.. and not forgetting
Arthur who up to 86 years of age still worked making the Walkley clogs for two days a
