In the early days a box of keys was the
only way to solve customers lock problems, but, at the same time
security was not a problem and a single key would very often open
several front doors. We still have a large collection of old keys,
some of which may well have been our original box.
We are members of the Master Locksmiths
Association and the locksmithing department has gained an enviable
reputation for restoring antique locks and reproducing malleable
iron keys for many churches and old houses in a traditional style.
The workshop produces locks to customers' special requirements.
Modern locks to insurance standard can be set into wooden lock
cases to give high security with a Victorian style appearance.
We stock over 14,000 keys including the
malleable iron keys for churches and other antique locks. We are
always pleased to quote for cutting unusual keys. In our workshop
we reproduce keys using British and Continental blanks, but where
necessary we can make keys to unusual design where no blank is
available. An example is illustrated. We also keep a range of
antique locks in stock that are for sale and are proud to state
that we have customers all over the world.
In our workshop we can restore and repair
old locking mechanisms to working order, and where necessary make
keeps and renovate lock cases
