HISTORIC LIGHTING RESTORATION AT BERKLEY CASTLE

Lighting Restoration

Berkeley Castle is a castle in the town of Berkeley, Gloucestershire. The castle's origins date back to the 11th century and it has been designated by English Heritage as a grade I listed building.

The castle has remained within the Berkeley family since they reconstructed it in the 12th century, except for a period of royal ownership by the Tudors. It is traditionally believed to be the scene of the murder of King Edward II in 1327.

Having been such a long-living and prolific family means that there are Berkeley connections all over the world, from Berkeley Square in London to the North of America and Australia in the South.

We’ve restored all of the light fittings over the last 3-4 years. It has a fantastic entrance which we particularly like, with intricate stonework.  The antique lights at Berkley Castle are fine quality and impressive in person, we particularly like the large antique lanterns which have been mounted on posts and leant against the wall to either side of the fireplace in the main hall.
