We love to reclaim beautiful things & good design never goes out of style.

We reclaim and create bespoke furniture and fittings and we design and install bespoke fitted kitchens too. We have a showroom and an on site workshop with a team of skilled and experienced craftsmen.

Many suppliers offer dust free floor sanding, but is it really 100% dust free? No. We have the only machinery in the UK that is 100% Guaranteed Dust Free. No need to protect valuables from toxic sanding dust – there is none. All dust is collected via a 2” hose to a collection unit outside the property. 100% Dust Free Floor Sanding: Call us for a free estimate today.

A knowledge base for the setting out and design of staircases and handrails. Wishing to know more about how a staircase works? or how to get the handrail to flow nicely around the curves of a geometric flight of stairs? From our staircase glossary you find the part that you wish to know more about and follow that link down to get, when available, more information on the four main sections about that part. the sections we have split this information into are: Design, technical drawing, manufacture, and on-site installation.

We are building this information as fast as we can but at the same time keeping it as accurate as possible to real life situations that work. We will add variuos styles of visuals to help explain the processes or designs. Some of these visuals will be 3D interactive models so you can turn layers on or off and look at them from different angles to get a better understanding of that stage of building stairs.

With over 40 years experience Eminent Master Blacksmith Don Barker is a leading producer of top quality ironwork. He has been entrusted with many prestigious commissions for nationally important and iconic buildings whilst giving the same care and consideration to the smallest of jobs.

We are a small architectural studio specialising in the trasnformation of historic buildings and the design of beautifully crafted new homes.

Mark Hines was the project architect responsible for the £1.4bn remodelling and transformation of the BBC’s grade two* listed Broadcasting House. He is a former design director of respected London design practice MacCormac Jamieson Prichard and is one of the UK’s few Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) Scholars, which was set up in 1877 by William Morris.

Having gained valuable experience in a large office, our architectural practice unites contemporary design and conservation and is focussed on how architecture can help improve people’s quality of life.

Working on listed buildings often requires the involvement of a design architect and a conservation specialist. Our background in both worlds unites high-quality design and conservation expertise in a single practice, allowing us to breathe new life into all types of historic buildings.

We see architecture, restoration, interior design, and conservation work as discrete strands of a single discipline, rather than separate specialisms in their own right. This approach can help enhance the experience and image of the building and create places where historic architecture, later modifications, carefully judged restoration work and successive redevelopment projects all merge and blend seamlessly into a single harmonious whole.

Born out of a passion for craft and making, our new projects combine the qualities of traditional architecture but meet contemporary needs. We try to give all our buildings an air of timelessness and durability with a focus on warmth, comfort, and character and use beautiful, traditional materials like brick, stone, and timber in different ways to create cosy, humane and atmospheric buildings.

Our experience in the design, conservation, and commercial worlds allows the development of new proposals that are directly informed by a thorough understanding of the specific historical, cultural, social, economic and physical context of each situation and helps us simplify the design and construction process, balance competing demands and minimise costs.

"Destination architectural salvage company and design studio. A showroom housed across two buildings in Kensal Green sells architectural elements including tropical hardwoods, quality windows, doors, stone, vintage and antique furniture, rugs, lighting and eye catching one-off finds."

The Retrouvius design studio turns respectfully re-used materials to distinctive, contemporary ends. Taking only a few projects each year, in properties ranging from contemporary penthouse to medieval priory, yacht to boutique, each is attentively tailored to the evolving needs of the client as well as the demands of the site.

Photographs only tell part of the story: beneath the inventively applied wood and stone, the lovingly hand-dyed and reclaimed textiles, lie larger tales of transformation, and relationships with clients that stretch over multiple projects.

I am a full time historical researcher and author with an academic background in History, Sociology and Politics at degree and postgraduate degree level. I also have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (Post Compulsory Education), which qualifies me to teach adults. I was awarded a second MA with Merit in Biography and Creative Non Fiction by the University of East Anglia.

I have been conducting family, house and local history research on a full time professional basis since 1992, setting up my own research company in 1997, and am a full member of Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives (AGRA), the foremost accrediting body in the UK. I began my research career by working at Norfolk Record Office for six years. During this time I conducted research on a daily basis on behalf of those who could not visit in person, and assisted visitors with their own research projects. While working at the record office I also transcribed and indexed numerous documents dating from the sixteenth century onwards, including poor law settlement examinations, probate records, coroners’ inquests and quarter sessions court papers.

As well as a wide range of private clients from across the world, I have assisted several authors, academics, journalists and television producers with their background research. These include the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, and I appeared on the Mary Berry episode in 2014 and the Jonnie Peacock episode in 2018. In addition to this have been featured widely in local press, national family history magazines and blogs, and appeared on various local radio shows as an expert and educator in the field. Other organisations I have worked for include local architects, property developers, marketing companies, solicitors, hotels and pubs; the heritage sector; the New England Historic Genealogical Society in America; Customised Heritage Tours in Australia and national newspapers.

As a qualified teacher of adults, I have given talks and run courses and workshops on family history and house history research at all levels from beginners to post-graduate locally, nationally and online. These include at Bury St. Edmunds Record Office, The Genealogy Show at the NEC, the Family Tree Live show; the Who Do You Think You Are? Live show; The Family History Shows; the Society of Genealogists; Adult Education services; a two year post-graduate course at the University of East Anglia; Heritage Open Days; the National Writers’ Centre; the National Centre for Writing; the Families in British India Society (FIBIS); the Guild of One Name Studies, the Society for One Place Studies; the National Trust; Deepings Literary Festival and numerous family and local history societies, museums and libraries.

I played a key role in developing the genealogy certificate programme offered by an online course provider, and taught for them for ten years. Many of my courses are attended by librarians, record office staff and people aiming to set up as professional researchers. In the past I also taught adults on Access, A Level, GCSE and NVQ courses in history and humanities related subjects through the Adult Education and HM Prison Services. Whilst working for the latter I received Home Office security clearance. I have also been a visiting lecturer on archival research for the MA in Biography and Creative Non Fiction at UEA.

I am the author of several research guides, biographies and local histories: ‘Tracing Your Ancestors: Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk’, ‘Tracing Your House History’ and ‘Writing Your Family History are all published by Pen and Sword Books. Another guide on ‘Tracing Your Tudor and Stuart Ancestors’ and a local history on ‘Struggle and Suffrage in Norwich’ are in progress for the same publishers.

My biography of the fascinating and overlooked hero of the English Civil Wars, Vice-Admiral Sir John Lawson is entitled ‘Lawson Lies Still in the Thames’. This was published by Amberley Publishing, and I have a contract with them for another biography of two sisters called ‘The Huguenot Daughters’. My local history ‘I Therefore Post Him as a Coward’ about a scandal in a north Norfolk village in 1836 was published by Poppyland Publishing, and I am working on some new projects for their booklet series.
