The Abbott-Wade Family Tree

The roots of the Abbott-Wade family tree run deep and the branches spread wide. Unlike many family businesses which claim the title as they’re run by two siblings, a married couple or a parent & child – family is more than just at the heart of our business, it is the spine which runs right through it with three generations of family employed.

Meet the Family

Of course we not all related but we do like to think of Abbott-Wade as a big happy family and look out for each other as though we were. Over the years, many members of the family have played their role. Craig’s Uncle Paul provided a fledgling Abbott-Wade one of its first contracts and went on join the sales team for several years. Mike’s father Derek, a painter and decorator by trade, transformed our new premises (a huge undertaking) after the building work was completed to create an attractive working environment. Mums Christine and Jean packed the first packed lunches all those years ago and since have stepped in when called upon to add a helping hand in the office and provided valued advice.

A family business is a business like no other and were proud to be counted among them!

“We are highly delighted with our staircase and without a second thought would recommend Abbott-Wade. They have totally transformed our hallway. We hadn’t seen an oak and glass staircase ‘in real life’ only in pictures. The reality is so much better than we could have imagined, we absolutely love it and the glass is really so very easy to clean and maintain. A job well done – Thank you!”

Watch: Climbing Big Ben & The Elizabeth Tower

There’s something strangely satisfying about looking behind the scenes of an iconic building and there are fewer buildings more famous than the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Clock Tower. The tower was renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012 in honour of Queen Elizabeths jubilee and stands 96 meters tall housing 11 floors. The Elizabeth Tower is often mistakenly called Big Ben which is actually the name of the bell within the tower inscribed with the name of Sir Benjamin Hall, First Commissioner for Works after whom it is believed the bell takes it’s name.

Within the belfry (whose bells were first broadcast by the BBC in 1932) is a spiral with 334 steps with a total of 399 to the lantern (the Ayrton Light) and an elevator is also expected to be added during the current restoration work. You can take a trip up the historic staircase (without having sore legs in the morning) by watching the video below:
