I think ayrefield s probably right=t aboutthe owners of Wigan coal &iron co.
This company was a major player in the Wigan coalfield and owned many mines and the iron works as well.
The original name of the works at top lock was Kirkless iron and steel works and it made locomotives from 1865 to 1912.
