The History of English Lamp Posts
English Lamp Posts was founded over three decades ago by Eric Schubert, a specialist in metal fabrication. Eric always had a passion for metal work and started his career working for Marston’s in the aptly named Black Country. As his experience grew so did his passion for reclamation and restoration. Spending much of his spare time repairing and restoring period Victorian architectural ironmongery.
From his hobby and passion Eric established English Lamp Posts and in 1985 Eric’s son Clive took over the day to day running of the business, whilst Eric concentrated on perfecting the company’s ability to manufacture superior quality Victorian lighting.
In 2007 Clive’s son also joined the company, enabling the company to offer its Victorian lighting range and products online.
The company continues to strive forward with Eric still at the manufacturing helm, ensuring everything the company produces still holds the same level of superior quality.
If you have any questions with regards to any of our products or manufacturing techniques, please do not hesitate to call or email.
