Sid Pollard lived in Bagby, near Thirsk, and was one of Robert Thompson's early apprentices. His solo work is almost always unmarked, preferring to let his craftsmanship speak for itself. After leaving Thompson's he combined his solo work with the family building firm, Pollard Builders. His solo work dates from the 40's through to his death in the early 80's.
