Audley End

Audley End restoration ironmongery by Mid Beds LocksmithsKing Henry VIII gave Walden Abbey to Sir Thomas Audley, who transformed it into his mansion, renaming it, Audley End.

Despite ups and downs in its fortunes, Audley End remains one of England’s grandest country homes with over 30 lavishly decorated rooms.

The sumptuous interior is largely due to the third Baron Braybrooke who inherited Audley End in 1825, filling it with treasures including paintings by Masters such as Holbein and Canaletto.

Audley End is a principal house in the English Heritage portfolio.

MBL has carried out many varied and interesting projects and minor works at Audley End, working with both English Heritage and main contractors. Works have included reproducing exact copies of large projection hinges and on-sire repairs to the entire ironmongery restoration and renovation of the “Service Wing”

We have manufactured exact copies of original rim locks with palace action followers to a single commission for a reproduction rim lock and knob set within the principal rooms at Audley End.
