Master craftsmen maintaining old skills

Locker & Riley was founded by Clive Locker and Michael Riley in 1982, after joiner Clive saved 7,000 beautiful woodblock carvings from being destroyed.

He spent two years researching their origins, leading him back to a fibrous plaster company that closed in the 1960s. With Michael as a partner, they revived the business and its skills

Since then, our master craftsmen have focused on using techniques and production methods passed down through generations to recreate and restore plaster mouldings.



From the detailed and regular task of safety inspections and minor repairs to complete restoration, Locker & Riley have worked with us to meet strict quality standards within rigid timescales.

I just wanted to say a big thank you and to all you wonderful staff at Locker & Riley for all your very patient help and guidance over the past 18 months. Your professionalism and efficiency were exemplary – something sadly almost unheard of in these modern times.
