Lock and Keys
“The lock and new keys arrived today and they're perfect! Thank you so much for such great service and work. It's all better than we could have imagined. Thank you!”
House and Church
"I live in a 17th century farm house for which I have only ever had one (original) front door key. Our church surveyor told me about Blackstage and, hey presto, a duplicate key was made – to time, to cost and to good effect."
"The Parochial Church Council needed to open our isolated rural church to the public following works supported by an English Heritage Grant but members were concerned about our third party liability because we had no keys to the lock on the door of the tower. Communication with Blackstage is easy and, again, with little delay after despatching the lock, two keys were provided and we can rest easy.
I cannot speak too highly of the reliability of, the ease of communication with and the value for money from this firm’s impeccable service."
Professor Charles Brook, JP,
Georgian house in Dorset
"I have used Blackstage on the restoration of a large, early Georgian house in Dorset. They have restored many of the original locks from the house and copied various large brass cast rimlocks and bolts. They provide a unique service in being able to replicate antique fittings producing just the right look and patina. They offer a very personal and efficient service and have unrivaled contacts with UK and international suppliers of period and contemporary specialist ironmongery."

Yes, yes the locks are brilliant!
I can't wait to see them back on the doors - I just have to wait for my decorators to finish...
It was the front door lock that amazed me most, firstly, it works, and secondly the new key for it is VAST! They all look amazing, new almost!
