We design and install our award-winning traditional and modern conservatories throughout Suffolk and are happy to visit Halesworth to discuss your requirements whether you are looking for a conservatory or orangery.

If you are looking for a conservatory for a period or contemporary home, we believe that we can design a conservatory that will complement your property and become an important focal point for your family and visitors.

All our conservatories are bespoke made in our workshops by craftsmen using traditional skills. We marry their skills with modern fitments and double-glazing to ensure excellent insulation and a draught-free environment so that you can enjoy your conservatory not just in the summer, but through the winter as well.


Almshouses Halesworth Suffolk

Halesworth has a history in brewing, malting and agriculture. From the early 18th century until 1980, malting and brewing were major industries and at one point there were nine maltings in the town. In 1824 Patrick Stead, a Scottish merchant, bought the malting and brewery house. After his death he left money to convert the buildings into a hospital and these still serve the local community today.

The thoroughfare through the town centre is now pedestrianised and leads to the market place where many old buildings can be found. Beyond is St Mary’s church and the old Almshouses. Inside the church is a cross made from the propeller of a WWI aircraft. This marks the burial place of fighter ace Lieutenant A Johnson who fell in Flanders.

The Almshouses were built in 1686 to house 12 single poor men and women. One of the rules of the Almshouses was “no smoking”, however during renovations a secret stash of smoking implements were found hidden in the wall above the fireplace!
