Historical Projects

The team at W.B. Simpson & Sons take pride in our history and for our 190th year, we have set up a working group to collate information on our rich history of projects. Founded in 1833, we began life as a Central London based manufacturer of hand-painted, decorative tile panels and stained glass. Demand grew throughout the 19th century for decorative work in churches, theatres, hospitals, country mansions and public houses. During our first 100 years, we took on the largest contract ever undertaken by a single tile company, the London Underground. On this page, you can find examples of our heritage works. Be sure to visit regularly as we continue to update the page!
