When finishing my education in the mid 1970's, leaving school with an O level in metalwork, I joined Holland Holland for a five year apprentiship. The first year was spent making the tools of the trade which also included a day release at college. During that first year I decided I wanted to be a barrel maker. The next four years were spent in the barrel shop learning all aspects of Barrel Making.
After finishing my apprentiship I stayed at Holland Holland furthering my skills in Barrel Making. In 1983 I left Holland Holland and joined James Purdey Sons where I furthered my skills learning over unders and stayed there until 1985.
I started my own Barrel Making Company when leaving purdeys and have since then traded under the name of London Barrel Maker. I specialise in making and repairing Shot Gun and Rifle Barrels, Side by Side and over Under in all sizes and lengths. I also specialise in making unique barrels which have included a pair of three barrelled side by side by side barrels and many big calibers.
I have worked for some of the finest gunmakers in the world including James Purdey Sons, Boss, Holland Holland, Atkin Grant Lang, John Dickson Son, Hartmann Weiss, Peter Nelson, Wesley Richards.
I am now passing on my skills to my youngest son Matt and we both take great pride in the work we produce. I am a member of the GTA and Gunmakers Livery.
