We are very proud of our workshop, which is understandable when you consider that our company was set up over 20 years ago by carpenter and woodworker David Knapp. David’s passion for first-class wooden fireplace surrounds and mantels is still evident today in the exceptional examples of English craftsmanship produced by our thriving workshop. David himself is also still very much evident today, as he can often be found in the workshop either working or sharing his expertise with the team!
Both traditional methods and modern equipment combine at Victorian Fireplaces to create some of the finest fireplace surrounds and mantels available. You may choose from one of our existing designs illustrated here on our website or we will create a bespoke design and/or size especially for you.
Compare our hand-produced and finished work to mass-produced imported surrounds and you will instantly see and feel the difference in quality. Our work will enhance your home for years to come. David is so confident of the quality we produce, every one of his wooden surrounds has his name on it.
Alongside our workshop is our warehouse space, in which we carefully store the stone and marble surrounds that we have hand-picked ourselves for quality of finish and construction. The same thoughtful and considered approach is used when we select our cast iron inserts, stoves and accessories.
