  • It came as a relief to have my problem solved by someone in whose expertise I could have complete confidence, because of her very impressive academic and practical record. In addition, Lucy’s enthusiasm was infectious, and her helpfulness far beyond what one normally expects.

  • Antique Bronze Ltd undertook a restoration in situ of Aintree’s iconic statue, Red Rum in 2015. The professional advice we received was very helpful, the works were undertaken in a timely fashion and with minimal disruption to the racecourse. The result was outstanding and I would definitely use them again in the future.

    Stephen Milton, Aintree Racecourse
