Bridgedale Outdoor Ltd is based at the tip of the Strangford Lough, Newtownards, near Belfast in Northern Ireland under the shadow of the Scrabo Tower which was built as a monument to Lord Londonderry.
The factory has been knitting socks in Newtownards since WW1, when the first army socks were made. The strong heritage in hosiery is a feature of the Bridgedale brand. Several of the team have been working in the factory for over 40 years, so you could say we know our socks!
When the first Bridgedale socks were launched in the early 1980's there were 3 colours: Red, Green and Navy, 2 sizes: 4-7 and 7-11 and 2 lengths: Boot or Knee. A total of 12 products.
