Here you can see working examples of our gorgeous toughened glass products, making your ability to make an informed decision on what would suit your property even easier.
Seeing our products on our website is often enough for potential customers to decide what they want, but we have recognised the fact that many of our customers want to see and touch the products before making up their mind. This and the huge increase in demand for our quality glass products has prompted us to open our Cambridge show room.
The ease in which you can keep our toughened glass products clinically clean is just one of the major factors that appeal to our customers.
A quick glance under the sink of most properties will reveal a mind boggling array of cleaning fluids intented to tackle the many different surfaces we find around our homes. Glass is not only one of the simplest surfaces to clean, it is also one that can be the cheapest. Say goodbye to dozens of different cleaning aids and buy some distilled vinegar which is widely available. Mixed with an equal amount of clean water, the vinegar will clean your glass, leaving it streak free and sparkling clean. Better still, the vinegar is the perfect cleaning solution for so many other surfaces and adding some bicarbonate of soda can extend its cleaning abilities even further.
In todays world of superbugs and viruses, having a surface that is easy, cheap and quick to clean is a genuinely sound reason to choose our toughened glass products for your home and office.
Huntingdon is a market town in Cambridgeshire. The town was chartered by King John in 1205. It is the traditional county town of Huntingdonshire, and is currently the seat of the Huntingdonshire district council. It is known as the birthplace in 1599 of Oliver Cromwell. The connection between Huntingdon and the government may have originally been recorded when Cromwell served as the Member of Parliament for the town, but continued when Sir John Major went on to become the MP and Prime Minister. Sir John Major served as Prime Minister, taking over from Margaret Thatcher in 1990 until 1997, but served as MP for Huntingdon from 1979 until his retirement in 2001.
Huntingdon was originally founded by the Anglo-Saxons and Danes. It is first mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 921, where it appears as Huntandun. It appears as Huntedun in the Domesday Book of 1086. The name means The huntsmans hill or possibly Huntas hill.
It appears that Huntingdon was a staging post for Danish raids outside of East Anglia until 917, when the Danes moved to Tempsford in Bedfordshire, before they were crushed by Edward the Elder. Huntingdon prospered as a bridging point of the River Great Ouse, as a market town, and in the 18th and 19th centuries as a coaching centre, most notably the George Hotel. The town has a well preserved medieval bridge that used to serve as the main route of Ermine Street over the river. The bridge only ceased to be the sole crossing point to Godmanchester in 1975, with the advent of what is now the A14 bypass.
Huntingdon had its valuable trading position secured by Huntingdon Castle, of which only the earthworks of its motte survive. The site is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument and home to a beacon used to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Spanish Armada.
In 1746, the botanists Wood and Ingram of nearby Brampton developed an elm tree cultivar, Ulmus Hollandica Vegeta, which they named the Huntingdon Elm after the Cambridgeshire town.
Original documents on Huntingdons history, including the borough charter of 1205, are held by Cambridgeshire Archives and Local Studies at the County Record Office, Huntingdon.
Parts of Huntingdon, including the town centre, were struck by an F1/T3 tornado on 23 November 1981, during a record breaking nationwide tornado outbreak on that day. Moderate damage was caused to Huntingdon town centre.
Between the railway station and the old hospital building stands a replica cannon installed in the 1990s to replace one from the Crimean War that was scrapped for the war effort during the Second World War. However, it faces in the opposite direction from the original.
The George Hotel on the corner of High Street and George Street was once a posting house. It was named after St George in 1574 and bought a quarter of a century later by Henry Cromwell, the grandfather of Oliver Cromwell. Charles I made the George Hotel his headquarters in 1645. Later the highwayman Dick Turpin is said to have been a visitor, when it was a coaching inn on the Great North Road. Turpin was reputed to frequent many parts of the Cambridge area. Another location that is said to have been visited by Turpin is a a mere seventeen miles from Huntingdon and if reports are to be believed, he is still there.
The Bell Inn, a classic English pub in the quiet Cambridgeshire village of Stilton, is believed to be haunted by Dick Turpin.
The Bell Inn has stood in Stilton, Cambridgshire since at least 1500, though it could be as old as 1437, with the current rendition of the building dating from 1642. Supposedly, Turpin hid in this public house for nine weeks while he was being hunted by the law in the 18th century. Unfortunately for Turpin, his luck ran out when he was later arrested in York and executed for horse theft while living under an assumed name.
Two wings of the George Hotel were burnt down in the middle of the 19th century, but two were saved, including one with a balcony overlooking the yard. Since 1959 the courtyard and balcony have been used for Shakespeare performances produced by the company run by the Shakespeare at the George Trust.
