This Tudor Arch style fireplace was designed and carved using solid blocks of Clipsham Limestone quarried in Lincolnshire.
It has a warm honey colour with swirls of darker greys, the bands of shell giving texture and an aged appearance. It carves well and has good shadows to enhance the carving, small Tudor Rose decorations were added to the spandrels.
The stone choice compliments the red brick lining to the fireplace, soft back lighting gives the colours great contrastt.
Hugh Peachey was extremely helpful over the design and very nice to deal with and it was all completed in good time.
Dear Hugh, This is just a quick note to thank you so much for the stone fireplace you fabricated and fitted for us. It was a delight to work with you. The initial design sketches gave us lots of ideas, the quality of manufacture is first class, and the overall result has given the drawing room exactly the lift we were looking for. You evidently enjoy your work; in an age of mass production, it is a joy to find a craftsman who can turn out such fantastic bespoke pieces.
We were delighted with the service and quality of work done by Hugh, we would be very happy to recommend him.
The Mason's yard carved a matching pair of fireplaces for my renovation project in London; I am very pleased with the standard of work and service offered by Hugh and his team.
They were recommended to me by previous customer and I would happily recommend them to anybody in need of a natural stone Fireplace.
