With our new store opening in the heart of Wells on a very busy and bustling Broad Street we thought we’d take a look at the town to get to know it better, and at the types of properties in the area that we will be serving.

The City’s biggest attraction is its magnificent Gothic style Cathedral. It is simply stunning, and houses one of the largest collections of historic stained glass windows in the country. We’ve read that extensive work has been carried out in recent years to repair and preserve the famous 14th Century Jesse Window.

Jesse Window

Experts have applied all the care and attention needed to preserve this masterpiece, including the use of clever window glazing that protects but doesn’t compromise the visual impact of the piece. Whilst we love to replace old and worn out windows with modern, attractive and weather-proof alternatives, we’re happy to let the restoration experts take care of this one!

Wells is within easy distance of some stunning outlying villages and towns within the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels including Cheddar, Priddy, Wedmore, Wookey Hole, Glastonbury and Pilton. We’re looking forward to visiting many of these more rural locations. Many properties enjoy stunning views which we’re sure will be even more spectacular when looking through modern, draught-free and secure new windows.

There are lots of historic and listed properties as well as typical town and country houses so we expect to be fitting plenty of modern sash windows, enchanting stable doors and charming entrance doors and accessories that perfectly match each property’s particular style.

The climate here is typical of the South West of England, mild with plenty of rainfall. It’s ideal for enjoying family and social time whatever the weather in a light, airy conservatory that’s cosy in the winter and a lovely garden room in the summer. We can accommodate conservatories in most gardens, large or small, or fit chic bi-fold windows or French doors that open out conveniently onto the garden from a kitchen or dining room.

We love the variety of properties in the area and are looking forward to being part of the community, getting to know the local people better, and enhancing their lifestyles with tasteful, modern home improvements. We’re also looking forward to the plethora of festivals in October, in particular the Wells Food Festival and New Music Wells.

What a vibrant and interesting town it is!
