The Victorian practical visionary William Morris has strong links to Hammersmith. His home, Kelmscott House, lies by the Thames close to the former site of his press of the same name. The name symbolises his
wide range of interests and achievements as writer, socialist and designer of type fonts and wallpaper.
Although his name is synonymous with the Arts and Crafts movement, Morris’ most enduring legacy may be as co-founder of SPAB – the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. Formed to counteract the Victorian improvement and near vandalisation of so much of our heritage, the society has helped to save many a national treasure from alteration and destruction.
Morris would be glad to see how many of our traditional building features remain as popular as ever, such as wooden floors. The most beautiful and natural of floorings, they also offer durability, hygiene and ease ofmaintenance. Some wear is inevitable,with time taking its toll in marks,
scratches and possibly worse damage. The solution? A new floor from a professional floor sanding company.
We repair and replace all damaged timber, whether blocks in a parquet
floor or hardwood boards. After sanding to a smooth surface, a layer of
sealant - lacquer, wax or oil - provides a hardwearing and attractive finish.
If you are fortunate enough to have a period floor such as parquet or herringbone, we can do an authentic restoration. We source matching blocks from our suppliers of reclaimed materials.

Did you know this about Hammersmith?
Hammersmith is a district in west London, England, in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, approximately five miles (eight kilometres) west of Charing Cross on the north bank of the River Thames. One of west London's key transport hubs and commercial and employment centres, and home to several multinational company offices, it is focused on the two London Underground stations, bus station and road network node at Hammersmith Broadway.
Just north of the Great West Road in West Hammersmith is St Peter`s Square, a pleasant mix of Georgian and Regency houses. The actor Sir Alec Guinness (1914-2000) lived at No. 7 in 1950s, and this splendid Regency house later became Peter Finch and Anne Bancroft`s film home in the 1964 movie of Penelope Mortimer`s The Pumpkin Eater. In 2006 scenes for Miss Potter, Peter Rabbit author Beatrix Potter, were filmed in the square.
The elegant and distinctive cast-iron Hammersmiht Bridge, with a central span of 422 ft. (129 m), was designed by Sir Joseph Bazalgette and opened in 1887. It replaced London`s first suspension bridge, which William Tierney Clarke built across the Thames here in 1827. The green-gold paintwork reflects the colours of Harrods, whose depository is nearby in Barnes, on the south bank. At high tide, the bridge has a clearance of just 12 ft. (3, 6 m), making it The Lowest Bridge across the Thames in London.
