A Southend on Sea splashback!

We recently fitted one of our glass splashbacks for a client who lives down in Southend on Sea, in Essex. As you can imagine the client wanted something that was personal to them and to where they lived. So naturally, a maritime theme was used! The client had actually [...]

Adding Glass Trees to the Lake District

A tribute to the eclipse
