Celebrating One Hundred and Twenty Years of Laundry History

On the 14th June 1901, The Sherborne Sanitary Steam Laundry Company Co Ltd was incorperated.

Founded by the Reverend Canon Frederick Brooke Westcott, the then Headmaster of Sherborne School, along with local businessmen including James Parsons of the Sherborne Butcher’s shop, the laundry was founded to serve the commercial needs of the local area and the requirements of Sherborne School. One hundred and twenty years later, the legacy of the original company lives on through Guarantee.
