Meer End Has Specialised In Bespoke Staircases And Other Aspects Of Joinery.
Meer End is family-opened, and openness is our way.
Everything we design, we manufacture in our joinery workshops on the Warwickshire border.
If you’re looking to commission a bespoke staircase or other item of joinery, it’s well worth the journey to our joinery workshop.
No strings, we’ll sit in our Atelier, review staircase styles and discuss materials (it’s not all about hardwoods – glass and steel are increasingly incorporated into today’s statement staircases). We could even get round to a ball-park figure, a project timescale and a handshake.
What’s In Our Name?
In Medieval times, the most accomplished – and innovative – craftsmen of their day were employed at Kenilworth Castle.
This included master joiners, responsible for the staircases and doors that linked the magnificent state rooms to the regal reception rooms and majestic Great Hall.
Their work wasn’t confined to the Castle itself either. Those joiners also created unique and imaginative bowers, arbours and seating throughout the 4,000-acre Castle park.
At the heart of that landscape was the great man-made lake – the meer. It was created by damming and flooding in 1120, and drained in 1650, when the castle was reduced to ruins by Parliamentarian soldiers following the English Civil War.
Our modern day workshop is at Meer End – at the exact point where the vast meer came to an end. And it’s home to some of the most accomplished – and innovative – craftsmen of today.
