For many years the firm T & M Dixon was a large business empire centred in the northern part of the Parish of Tardebigge between Bromsgrove and Redditch, in north-east Worcestershire. It all began when Thomas Dixon, a canal carrier and coal dealer in Birmingham was allotted a boat length and stacking ground for coal at Tardebigge Old Wharf in 1807 and two years later rented the nearby Lower House Farm and began to farm locally.

This work tells the story of the Dixon family and the involvement of its members in the growth and development of the family business over five generations, and of the eventual decline and disintegration of the business following World War II. This book contains the memories of many people who were connected with T & M Dixon in its later years.
