About Us

We are a small family business established by Simon Harrison over 30 years ago. Our work shop is nestled at the bottom of the South Downs within the National Park near the beautiful town of Petworth.

Over the years Simon has acquired an immense knowledge on the restoration of Victorian Glasshouses. His attention to detail returns these glasshouses to their former glory.

We also supply new bespoke glasshouses which faithfully match the Victorian designs down to the cast iron winding gear and spandrel brackets.

Rupert, Simon’s son, joined the business a few years ago having worked for a joiner near Chichester. With Rupert’s knowledge on the machines it has enabled us to improve and enlarge the workshop with all the joinery done in house.

Sarah, Simon’s wife (and Mother of Rupert!) runs the office but has been known to help out in the workshop! Her faithful companion is Mabel who spends her time between the workshop and the office.


So, a true family business!
