Peckett 1456 was built in 1918 for the Bloxham & Whiston Ironstone Co. Ltd, a firm started by the Whiston Ironstone Co. Ltd in 1914 then becoming B&WI Co. Ltd from 22 December 1917. Following the First World War, ironstone was exploited as a resource and in 1918 the B&WI Co. Ltd were in possession of 191 acres of land in and around Bloxham.
