Customers

The firm’s customers came from all walks of life from the aristocracy downwards and from all parts of the UK and abroad. They sent structures as far afield as Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Egypt, India, New Zealand, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Turkey.

A number of their horticultural structures are still extant today, albeit some are just shells and in a forlorn state, whilst others are still in use, although almost none with their original timber.

This section will over time be organised by country and where applicable by county (England), followed by location (clustered into towns, villages or specific individual sites dependent upon the number of clients in a specific area). The location (town, village, street, etc) is based upon the firm’s records, with changes being made when the firm’s records are inaccurate or in order to provide a more accurate location.

A significantly small number of locations still retain their horticultural structures and/or heating systems, etc., and these, unless otherwise stated, are on private land and therefore not accessible.
