C.T.Wilson & Son - a family history

The business was established around 1860. The ‘CT’ of C.T. WILSON AND SON, was Charles Thomas Wilson, a coal merchant born in Emberton. Initially Charles ran the coal business delivering with his horse and cart. He also ran one of the two pubs in Emberton, The Bell.

Les Wilson, his son, ran the other pub in the village, The Bear, which are now both combined. Some years later his son Les joined the coal business. Les and his wife, Jean ran the pub together. They had six children most of whom were born in what is now called The Bell and Bear.

Charles eventually retired leaving Les to run the business. Gerald, the oldest of all the children, worked with his father, then Keith his youngest son joined the business. When Les retired Keith and Gerald joined as partners to run the business as you see it today.
Today the business is still very family orientated, employing two of Charles' Grandchildren, their wives and a great-grandchild!

The staff are helpful and supportive, they have nearly everything you could need from a hardware shop and the prices are very reasonable. I'm there so often I'm thinking of applying to be adopted!

This Aladin's Cave of a resource has been my salvation so many times. I'm always amazed at the range of stock and the knowledge of the staff, ever ready to go that extra mile to help. Service like it used to be!

This is a great shop. They are always friendly and helpful and unlike the big DIY places they are always happy to help and advise you on products, no matter how simple your enquiry is.

This is my 'go-to' shop for everything I need at short notice. They even understand my vague descriptions when asking where something is i.e. "I'm looking for those curtain hangy thingys. You know, the white plastic things". I was taken straight to them!
