Saw these and passed due to some cracks around the toe but I'm still curious what they are... Would have been a fun clean up / resto project.
^That 'Made in England' label is pretty generic on items of a certain age, I'm afraid. Charity shops up and down the United Kingdom will have items for sale carrying that tag on them.
The commonality of the tag doesn't make the item necessarily poorly-made, however. Usage of the tag seems to date from a time when RTW in the UK in general was of a higher overall quality than these days and you'll often find that these items have aged very well.
