We are pleased to introduce the 1st edition of our new architectural castings and street furniture catalogue. It has been a major job assimilating our vast range of architectural patterns, which we have continually added to since our inception in the early 1820s. We have accumulated around 100,000 ornamental patterns over this period so have carefully selected a broad spectrum of designs to cater for every requirement.

We believe our architectural castings and street furniture catalogue gives commercial, private, domestic and public clients access to the single largest collection of architectural castings in the UK if not the world.

In addition to the items shown in this catalogue, we also provide a bespoke service producing the most intricate and ornate patterns in our own, traditional pattern shop. We can also expertly replicate castings from any sample ensuring that you get a perfect match for all of your architectural cast iron requirements.

We always welcome enquiries for new and specialist work and our technical sales team will be happy to deal with any enquiry. To order a hard copy of our catalogue please send us an email and we’ll get one posted out.

We are passionate about three things; cast iron, heritage and quality. In a culture with a surfeit of cheap mass-produced goods, we proudly produce the handmade using traditional methods because, like you, we yearn for quality above all else. We take real pride in supplying authentic, handmade, heritage design castings, using traditional methods unchanged since Victorian times.
