If you are a gardener who wants to view your hard work more easily, or a homeowner wanting to extend your property, a conservatory or orangery specially designed to complement your home and garden could be the perfect solution.

We design and install traditional and modern conservatories throughout Suffolk and are happy to visit Bury St Edmunds to discuss your requirements.

Our conservatories and orangeries are bespoke made by carpenters and craftsmen using traditional skills, but we use modern fitments and double-glazing to ensure excellent insulation and a draught-free environment. This means that with the right heating you should be able to enjoy your conservatory not just in the summer but throughout the year as well.

ABOUT BURY ST. EDMUNDS

Abbey Gardens Bury St Edmunds Suffolk
Abbey Gardens

In the centre of this historic town you will find the remains of an Abbey surrounded by the Abbey Gardens. The abbey is a shrine to Saint Edmund, the Saxon King of the East Angle, killed by the Danes in 869 AD. The town initially grew around St Edmunds Abbey and developed into a flourishing market town by the 14th century.

Bury St Edmunds cathedral was created when the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich was formed in 1914. Originally the cathedral was St Denis’s Church, built in 1065 and later became St James Church when it was rebuilt in 1503.

The Theatre Royal, built by National Gallery architect William Wilkins in 1819, is the sole surviving Regency theatre in the UK and is now owned by the National Trust. Wilkin’s father was also an architect as well as being a theatre owner, so perhaps nepotism got him the commission!

Moyes Hall Museum is one of the oldest buildings in East Anglia. Built in 1180 it now houses a collection of fine art and local and social history, including the Red Barn murder and local witchcraft.
