The building of the Square in the early 1800s set off St Martin’s-in-the -Fields to perfection. Nell Gwynn and Francis Bacon lie buried in its former graveyard, while its crypt is a famous refuge for London’s homeless. Inside, the wooden galleries and pulpit are a rich complement to the plastered ceiling.
Around the Square, the Admiralty, embassies and National Gallery offer contrasts in later building styles. One tradition persists: the popularity of timber. This is particularly so with wood floors, whose beauty and ease of maintenance is matched by their practicality and endurance.
So whether in a pub, office, embassy, gallery or restaurant, your wooden floors provide a classy setting. When they become worn and tired or, even worse, marked or more seriously damaged, it’s time for remedial action. Restoration is the key through modern floor sanding.
Whether your floor consists of boards - hardwood or engineered - or blocks of herringbone or parquet, we can bring it back to its original beauty. Sometimes more so, as flooring products and levels of workmanship are now far superior to those available when these floors were laid down.
Don’t worry about dust: our up to date machines are clean and efficient. And disruption can be kept to a minimum: we work flexibly - overnight or at weekends. You will soon reopen for business – to impressed and gratified customers.

Did you know about Trafalgar Square?
Trafalgar Square is a public space and tourist attraction in central London, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross. It is in the borough of the City of Westminster. At its centre is Nelson's Column, which is guarded by four lion statues at its base. There are a number of statues and sculptures in the square, with one plinth displaying changing pieces of contemporary art. The square is also used for political demonstrations and community gatherings, such as the celebration of New Year's Eve.
The name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar (1805), a British naval victory of the Napoleonic Wars over France. The original name was to have been "King William the Fourth's Square", but George Ledwell Taylor suggested the name "Trafalgar Square". In the 1820s, George IV engaged the architect John Nash to redevelop the area. Nash cleared the square as part of his Charing Cross Improvement Scheme. The present architecture of the square is due to Sir Charles Barry and was completed in 1845.
When the square was laid out in the 1840s, the fountains' primary purpose was not aesthetic, but rather to reduce the open space available and the risk of riotous assembly. They were originally fed by water pumped from an artesian well by a steam engine sited behind the National Gallery. In the late 1930s it was decided to replace the stone basins and the pump.The new fountains were built to a design by Sir Edwin Lutyens at a cost of almost £50,000. The old fountains were bought for presentation to the Canadian government, and are now in Ottawa and Regina. The present fountains are memorials to Lord Jellicoe (western side) and Lord Beatty (eastern side).
