Watch us on TV! “Nick Knowles’ Original Features” On-site at Forest of Dean Stone Firms

Published: 18th September 2011

Filming at the company’s award-winning stoneworks, the crew shot footage of the processing and masonry of a four tonne piece of natural ‘Red St Bees’ sandstone. This distinctive sandstone, deep red in colour, is being used to create three individual cills, crafted by the stone firm’s experienced masonry team. This forms part of the programme’s wider restoration of a Victorian merchant’s house in Portishead, overlooking the estuary.

39_1Due to the company’s exemplary masonry skills and ability to supply an accurate, high-quality finished product, project contractors, Knight Bros Builders, Forest of Dean, appointed the natural stone specialist for this high profile, bespoke project.

The programme will be shown at 10pm on 26th October and again the following day at 4pm on UKTV Home Channel (Sky 246, Virgin 265).
