The business was set up by my father, Alan Taylor, in 1969. Trading as Alan Taylor and Sons, his reputation as a skilled artist and carpenter grew through word–of–mouth. He worked extensively on bespoke projects for local estates and also made candlesticks for St. Edmund’s Church.
With dad away on holiday in 1980 I made myself a turned bed. This was enough to inspire me to work with my father and learn the trade.
I grew up with dad building unusual, creative things all around me. High quality design, materials and craftsmanship are second nature to me. It’s hard for me not to notice details, good or bad.
