Kitchen Splashbacks in Ely

Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices. We cover many areas outside of Hertfordhire too, including Ely in Cambridgeshire.

A little Ely history

Ely is a cathedral city in Cambridgeshire. Construction of the cathedral was started in 1083 by a Norman abbot. Alan of Walsinghams octagon, built over Elys nave crossing between 1322 and 1328, is considered to be the greatest individual achievement of architectural genius at Ely Cathedral. Building continued until the dissolution of the abbey in 1539 during the Reformation. The cathedral was restored between 1845 and 1870. As the seat of a diocese, Ely has long been considered a city; in 1974, city status was granted by royal charter.

Roswell Pits are a palaeontologically significant Site of Special Scientific Interest one mile northeast of Ely. The Jurassic Kimmeridge Clays were quarried in the 19th and 20th centuries for the production of pottery and for maintenance of river embankments. Many specimens of ammonites, belemnites and bivalves were found during quarrying, in addition to an almost complete specimen of a pliosaur.

There is some scattered evidence of Late Mesolithic to Bronze Age activity in Ely such as Neolithic flint tools, a Bronze Age axe and spearhead. There is slightly denser Iron Age and Roman activity with some evidence of at least seasonal occupation. For example, a possible farmstead, of the late Iron Age to early Roman period, was discovered at West Fen Road and some Roman pottery was found close to the east end of the cathedral on The Paddock. There was a Roman settlement, including a tile kiln built over an earlier Iron Age settlement, in Little Thetford, three miles to the south.

Following the accession of Mary I of England to the throne in 1553, the papacy made its first effective efforts to enforce the Pope Paul III initiated Catholic reforms in England. During this time, which became known as the Marian Persecutions, two men from Wisbech, constable William Wolsey and painter Robert Pygot, were accused of not believing that the body and blood of Christ were present in the bread and wine of the sacrament of mass. For this Christian heresy they were condemned by the bishops chancellor. On 16 October 1555 they were burnt at the stake probably on the Palace Green in front of Ely Cathedral. In 2011, a plaque recording this martyrdom event was erected on the northeast corner of Palace Green by the City of Ely Perspective. The plaque is located two inches from the pavement floor in an obscure easily missed corner.

Oliver Cromwell lived in Ely from 1636 to 1646 after inheriting a sixteenth century property, now known as Oliver Cromwells House and the position of local tax collector from his mothers brother. Cromwell was one of the governors of Thomas Parsons Charity, which dates back to 1445 and was granted a Royal Charter by Charles I of England. The Charity still provides grants and housing to deserving local applicants.

Even better, you will be able to chat with a member of staff about our product lines and how they can be successfully incorporated into your home or office.

Glass balustrades are a favourite

Lately we have noticed a real interest in our beautiful glass balustrades. More and more people are wanting to replace the traditional wooden spindles on their stairs and have the cool, clean lines of glass and metal.

Our toughened glass balustrades are a thoroughly modern way to transform any home, adding extra light, interest and value to the property. They are also ultra easy to maintain too. No more painting or varnishing awkward spindles and hand rails, the glass requires a quick wipe with some window cleaner on a micro fibre cloth and the sparkle is back. Stainless steel or brushed steel fixings make the glass balustrades look even better.

Glass balustrades for safety

Out in the garden our glass balustrades will look amazing too. Gleaming glass surrounding your raised decking area, as a divider separating patio from lawn or as a very attractive safety barrier around a water feature or garden pond.

Our glass balustrades will not only safeguard your children and pets, they will even keep visiting garden wildlife visitors safe from the water too. A clear barrier to prevent any animals falling into the pond such as hedgehogs, foxes, badgers or sometimes even deer, if they are able to access your garden. These animals often fall into garden ponds and cannot get out again. Our glass balustrades are the perfect way to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your garden, while protecting our diverse wildlife at the same time.

Glass balustrades to deter unwelcome garden visitors

Our glass balustrades not only protect children, pets and wildlife from falling into a pond, they keep unwelcome visitors from gaining access to your prize fish too.

Many owners of garden ponds become frustrated when they repeatedly lose fish to the local heron. Once a heron knows there are fish in a garden, they will return daily until they have exhausted the supply of food, This is infuriating for pond owners and heartbreakingly expensive too, particularly if you have valuable Koi in the pond.

Once a heron realises that they cannot reach the fish, they will move off to find a softer target. So you can see why glass balustrades are popular both inside and outside of the home.
