On January 30th 2013 my Father, Mother, Wife and Son stood beside me at 2 o’clock in the morning watching our life’s work burn down around us. After 40 years creating some of the finest furniture the country has to offer our workshops disappeared in a matter of hours; patterns, notebooks, machinery, designs, furniture – the lot.
We have spent every day since then supporting one and other in rebuilding. Like a Phoenix from the ashes we are finally in a position to fly again, starting where my grandfather began all those years ago, with even more passion and dedication than ever before.
In our occasional down time we had our doubts as to whether or not we were doing the right thing. But nothing could deny what is in our hearts and in our blood. This is what we do and will continue to do so for many years to come.
We are renowned for our World Famous Windsor chairs, cabinets and tables, made from English Oak and Ash and simply wouldn’t let a ‘minor’ fire, which took 8 fire engines to control stop us making these wonderful pieces of furniture. Three generations of knowledge, experience and true grit wouldn’t allow it.
Come and see us if you want the best, English handmade solid wood furniture, made the proper way like they used to. Age-old methods and new innovative techniques go hand in hand with Batheaston’s range allowing the best of both worlds and a superior end product.
Our Yorkshire Dales showroom has re-opened and is awaiting your visit, we look forward to seeing you.
