------------------------------------------------
 
Having lived in old properties for the last 30 years, I have not only acquired many practical skills but also become aware of how difficult it can be to find reliable tradesmen at a reasonable cost.  I currently live in a 400-year-old thatched cottage with leaded lights in original wrought iron frames, and these were in need of restoration.
 
The opportunity arose in 2010 to break from a 33-year career in air traffic control engineering, so I decided to train in the techniques of leaded glass repair and conservation - initially to restore the windows in my own cottage.  There are not that many tradesmen in this field, and many are geared more to large commissions, ecclesiastical and architectural work.
 
I decided that there was room for a local business to provide restoration and repair services to smaller domestic properties.  In addition to repair, restoration and conservation, I have also started to build up a portfolio of decorative glass objects - in part inspired by the countryside of the Berkshire Downs where I live.
