The Clarke Story
In 1843 a farm labourer called Robert Clarke decided to try his hand at something else in order to supplement his meagre wages. With the help of the local blacksmith he made a set of tools to make a Tinwhistle. before long he moved to Manchesterwhere he built a mall factory and eventually became the largest manufacturer of Tinwhistles in England. The Clarke Tinwhistles being made today are still followint the traditional methods thereby ensuring the quality of the unique Clarke tone.
