of Bute Iron Works, Cardiff (see also Bute Shipbuilding and Engineering Works)

1874 Herbert Charles Maudslay, after resigning from his father's firm in Lambeth, joined with his brother, Charles Edmund Maudslay, to acquire the shipyard formerly occupied by Norman Scott Russell, on the left bank of the River Taff. The lease was dated June 24, 1874.

There were two slipways but it does not seem that Maudslay Brothers built any vessels there. The business was mainly concerned with dock gates. Work of this kind was done in 1878 for the Cumberland Basin at Bristol, but the business was then declining.

1879 The partnership was dissolved[1]. Charles Edmund Maudslay took over his brother’s half-interest, by way of mortgage

1882 Maudslay assigned the lease and goodwill. This was presumably subsequently known as Bute Shipbuilding and Engineering Works
