Wheelwrights  1969-1991

Before Furniture Makers we were Wheelwrights.

 

Richard Gill came from an unbroken line of wheelwrights stretching back to the 16th century.

 

Working in premises that housed the profession for generations before him.

 

 

He used the same techniques as his ancestors to build beautiful and traditional wooden carriages.

 

At the time there was increasing popularity for horse and carriage driving, as there were many people who appreciated the elegance, comfort and practicality of a traditional vehicle.

 

Our skills were very much in demand, keeping us busy not just restoring valuable old vehicles but also building new ones.

 

As the times changed however and the demand for horse drawn vehicles grew less the transition to furniture was made.
