Work complete at Cogges Manor Farm museum

We were delighted to return the kitchen range to the kitchen of the fantastic Cogges Manor Farm museum this week.  The range was in a terrible state when we first carried out the site survey but now it has been fully restored and will be ready for service for many more years to come.

This range is in weekly use for demonstrations and for school eduction.  If you are in the Oxford area please do plan a visit to Cogges, its a truly fantastic place!

The range is a large close fire type called a Swinton and manufactured by Hattersley Bros. Ltd at their Queen’s foundry, Swinton near Rotherham.  This particular example was badge engineered as a Mortimer and supplied by Bratt Colbran & Co from their London showrooms on (you guessed it!) Mortimer Street.
