the exterior in any colour and free delivery to many locations. The many fi replaces on display are from all eras, carefully fi nished in black or polish, and ready to use. Associated surrounds in marble, wood and slate are also skilfully restored in their workshops. “We are committed to the promotion of


reuse over recycling and think that the best way to achieve this is to show how items can be given a new lease of life.” Explains Sam. “We hope that even if we cannot sell anything to you, we can inspire you to restore your own treasures and preserve the quality of past eras for forthcoming generations.” Outside are large items, an oak porch,


a church spire, columns in stone and cast iron as well as fl ooring; Norfolk pamments,


a soft fi red clay fl oor tile used widely in period houses in this part of the country, are a popular item at Mongers. Locally sourced items provide a big theme at Mongers. Sam has recently cleared a barn of doors and door casements from an old Norfolk hall, demolished over 40 years ago: “These doors were similar to those sold at the recent attic sale at Chatsworth house and, like those items, had been stored for many years in case the owners might have a project for them in the future.” Says Sam. “They have now been sold for a new build in Bedfordshire. The new owners will be able to have quality totally unobtainable now, to give their home a unique character.” They also have a number of cast iron fi re inserts designed by Thomas Jekyll, in


the 1850’s, for the Norwich fi rm of Barnard Bishop and Barnard. These fi replaces are fi ne, intricate castings with geometric patterns and although found all over the country, they are commonly found in the best Norwich residences. Mongers, in spite of the nature of their


business, are not backward looking. They have an exciting website, with listings and images of much of their stock. It could be described as another showroom. So if you cannot get to Hingham visit www. mongersofhingham.co.uk. Their helpful staff will assist with any queries that you have.


Mongers are open Monday to Friday 9.30 am to 5.30pm and Saturdays 9.00am to 5.00pm, closed on Sunday.
