This ended in Andrews Road factory — now consequently called Parker-Hardcastle factory. In fact this put a definite end to Hardcastle as an own-standing pipe brand, and none other than Edwin Hardcastle , the last of the family executives, spoke frankly and loudly of Hardcastle pipes being degenerated to an inferior Dunhill second. Today Hardcastle pipes use funneled down bowls that are not deemed suitable to bear the Dunhill or even the Parker name as well as obtaining briar from other sources.
