Dear Harry, Steve and Neil,
On behalf of the Landmark Trust I just wanted to write and say Thankyou for working closely with Stuart and Peter Napier to help us carry out significant repair works to Landmark’s North Street properties under the recent Governments Cultural Recovery Fund for Major Works.
The deadline for completing the works was tight especially with the need to carry out sensitive conservation works over the winter months. In addition, the onsite team also had to deal with our Landmark’s tenants on a day to day basis, which we appreciate was not easy at times. However, the final result looks fantastic and is a real credit to the skills and workmanship of you and your skilled team.
H A Briddon are an established and long-standing family-run contractor, however this is the first time we have worked together. We acknowledge your dedication, skills and commitment to us on this project and we hope we can build on this successful working relationship into the future.
With best wishes,
Susan McDonough MRICS
Head of the Historic Estate

"Owning a listed building we were very concerned to get a building firm that understood the requirements for certain materials and approaches to the work required. With Briddons we got their considerable expertise and craftsmanship to help restore the house, repairing external walls through wholesale repointing work, replacing and repairing guttering and drains where needed, and repairing and rendering chimneys and brick walls. They took as much pride in their work as we did in it being our home. The on site team were friendly, professional and cleaned up each day. The project and construction managers, Harry and Steve were incredibly responsive and dealt with any issue that arose on the same day or within 24 hours of it being raised, making it a far less stressful time than it could have been. We have no hesitation in recommending Briddons to anyone that asks.".
Mrs D. Bunton
I would like yo extend my tanks to you and Harry for your support, expert advice and encouragement with our build.
The quality of the build has been first class and a testament to the excellent staff and subcontractors that you employ.
When the foundations were constructed for the Scandia Hus timber frame they requested a level surface to + or - 5mm. This was achieved and the same standard was maintained throughout the construction.
It has been a pleasure working together with you.
Mr & Mrs G. Green
"Having lived in Derbyshire for only five years, I didn't know any builders in the area. When visiting a local well know historic house near Bakewell with friends, I noticed several H A Briddon Ltd vehicles in the car park close to the scaffolding over the roof. This fact plus further research online encouraged me to contact H A Briddon Ltd to arrange a meeting. Over a year later, the significant extension works have been competed. Harry, Simon and all the staff were polite, professional, and extremely easy to deal with. Being a "self-confessed perfectionist" that has extended 5 houses in Buckinghamshire over the years, workmanship, quality of finish plus attention to detail are just a few of the qualities I expect in a firm of general builders. H A Briddon Ltd more than ticked all these boxes, an experience that had the potential to be extremely stressful being new to the area, ended up being, without doubt, the best to date. I have already and continue to be, extremely happy to recommended this family run business. THANK YOU!!" A. King
