The spire of St Martin, Ludgate is perfectly positioned to bisect the dome of St Paul’s when viewed from a position in Fleet Street: another example of Wren’s precision and genius. Within this outwardly unassuming church are many original wooden features: the altar piece, rails, organ case and a unique double churchwardens’ chair.
Aside from the splendours of the great Cathedral itself, other local buildings may have more modest attractions, but wood continues to be popular. Wooden floors have a timeless quality for both domestic and commercial buildings. They are not only practical - easy to keep clean and maintain - but offer beauty and quality that can add value.
So it pays to look after them. They will do the job even when battered, scratched and worn, but a facelift is a simple and speedy process - through modern floor sanding.
We have restored hundreds of floors at all levels of condition. Whether hardwood boards or parquet blocks, sanding removes the layers of old paint and varnish and prepares a smooth level finish. Then it’s time for your choice of sealant: lacquer for extreme durability - or the natural beauty of oil or wax.
All this with clean and efficient working as our sanding machines are practically dust free. And we work flexible hours – overnight or at weekends – so that your loss of business is kept to a minimum.
Perhaps you have a period floor – such as 1930s parquet. We restore these by sourcing matching blocks from our network of specialist suppliers. You will then have an authentic and beautiful new floor.

Interesting facts about St Pauls:
St Pauls (also written St Paul's) is an inner suburb of Bristol, England, situated just north east of the city centre and west of the M32. It is bounded by the A38 (Stokes Croft), the B4051 (Ashley Road), the A4032 (Newfoundland Road) and the A4044 (Newfoundland Street). In the early 18th century it was laid out as one of Bristol's first suburbs. During the days of the Bristol slave trade, St Pauls was the location of choice for the wealthy slave trading merchants. This is reflected in the Georgian architecture.
In the 1870s, Brooks Dye Works opened on the edge of St Pauls and became a major local employer, leading to the construction of terraced houses. The area was bomb damaged during World War II. Rebuilding and investment was focused on new housing estates such as Hartcliffe and Southmead rather than St Pauls, and this contributed to a decline in the quality of the area. During the large-scale immigration of the 1950s, many people moved from Jamaica and settled in St Pauls.
Many of the buildings in St Pauls are Georgian period with Portland Square, and St Paul's Church as particularly fine examples of Georgian architecture in the area. Both were designed by Daniel Hague although the original St Pauls Church was to be designed by James Allen in a Greek style. Work was started on the church in 1789 and completed in 1794. Edward William Godwin, a famous Victorian architect, lived at Portland Square. In 2005 the church was converted into its present form as the home of 'Circomedia', a circus school.
