Bespoke stained glass for Reigate

Recently we have created new bespoke stained glass for a house in Reigate incorporating features for the family and in particular the children. Design and colour choice was all driven by the customer who was involved throughout the process


The top light has a rose and a Arthurian shield to encompass the children’s names


The strong yellow front door is an important element in any Feng Shui and is particularly auspicious for south facing

This is our first work in Reigate  and it really shows how the three different light levels work with glass. The morning sun projects the glass into the hallway and then there is the passive colours in the afternoon and then finally the entirely different colours form the electric light projected outwards.


Reigate /ˈrɡt/ is a town of over 20,000 inhabitants in eastern Surrey, England. It is in the London commuter belt and one of three towns in the borough of Reigate and Banstead. It is sited at the foot of the North Downs and extends over part of the Greensand Ridge. Reigate has a medieval castle and has been a market town since the medieval period, when it also became a parliamentary borough.

The origin of the name Reigate is uncertain, but appears to derive from Roe-deer Gate, as the town was situated near to the entrance to the de Warenne’s deer park.

Reigate has been home to some very notable people over the years:

Spike Milligan, writer and comedian, used to live at Woodhatch in Orchard Way

Norman Cook, disc jockey, was born in Bromley, London, and raised in Reigate and attended Reigate Grammar School


Mia Farrow, film actress, lived here while married to André Previn - better known of course as  ‘Andrew Preview’ on Morecambe and Wise

Dame Margot Fonteyn, ballet dancer, was born here

Ray Mears, survival expert, attended Reigate Grammar School
