Dumb waiter

Above: This is all that was left of the Dumb Waiter, so we
set about measuring and drawing (right) of how we
perceived it to be in its heyday

 

We feel very privileged to work at Ickworth
House, A National Trust Property in Suffolk.

It had long been their ambition to convert the Rotunda
basemant back to its condition in 1910.

Icworth Lives which spans the period 1910 to 1939
was opened to the general public in March 2012.
It is a project which took a lot of planning and even
more skilled artisans to make their ambition happen!

Antique Rocking Horses Restoration

Melford Hall is a National Trust property which was devastated by fire in 1942, the house was nurtured back to life by the Hyde Parker family and it remains their much-loved family home to this day.  In the Beatrix Potter Room (she was a cousin of Ethel, Lady Hyde Parker, the grandmother of the present Baronet) was the family rocking horse (below left)  but with the modern Heath and Safety rules Alan was asked to make a new rocking horse in the style of the original, but one with which youngsters can now have fun and play on safely.
