Bespoke Heritage Joinery

Case Study

Parry Joinery have worked on numerous bespoke heritage joinery projects throughout Cheshire, North Wales and Manchester. This is an area of expertise that the company prides itself on, especially as it is located on the edge of the historic city of Chester where there is a wealth of listed buildings that require custom joinery, from timber windows and doors through to ecclesiastical joinery.

One of the most challenging projects was the restoration of the timber windows and doors found along the Roman Walls surrounding the city of Chester. Much of the existing window frames and doors were extremely damaged and rotten and therefore required replacing carefully and sympathetically to fit in with the historic nature of the walls. Our work can now be easily seen in the Observatory, the Main Tower, the Water Tower and Morgan’s Mount. Chester is a popular tourist destination for many people visiting North Wales, Cheshire and Manchester and as a local Chester Joinery company, we are proud to have been the involved in the manufacture and restoration of joinery work for this important historical heritage project.

Another of Parry Joinery’s custom joinery projects in Chester was the work carried out at the Blue Coat School on upper North Gate Street. Originally built in 1717, the school is a Grade II listed building that required careful consideration and planning when tackling the custom joinery on the interior and exterior of the building. Parry Joinery were responsible for the manufacture of acoustic timber panelling and sliding sash windows. The style of which had to be in keeping with the historic and ornate architecture which is an important part of the urban landscape on one of Chester’s main access roads.

The company has over 30 years’ experience in dealing with clients requiring heritage joinery expertise and therefore confident in dealing with, what can be delicate and challenging projects. Other examples of this bespoke form of joinery has also been undertaken by Parry Joinery and can be seen in their ecclesiastical joinery undertaken in Churches on the outskirts of Chester in Blacon and Waverton and further afield in other parts of Cheshire, including Alsager and Wilmslow.
