      Welcome to CW.
      Can you make out the first word?
      Second word looks like manufacture?
      The design is identical to the Yale 800 series lock. Perhaps this company or Yale copied or where partnered on this lock.
      Have a google search for;
      Yale Lock Mfg. Co. padlock Yale #800 series

      Could be a lock from Enoch Pinson LTD, Dale Works, Willenhall
      Look at the logo's on the padlocks in this link;

      Whatever, as a lock, it didn't work well. LOL!

      Thanks everyone for the comments. It does say British manufactured. I am busy treasure hunting around an 1875 boer farm house, just south of Johannesburg. Does anyone recognize the logo?

      It's a Enoch Pinson model 311 brass padlock built in 1938 ????
