The county town of Wiltshire, Trowbridge has a rich history in weaving and cloth making. In the Industrial Revolution Trowbridge was described as "The Manchester of the West", and many of the newly rich cloth merchants built fine houses near the town centre. Like so many towns in Wiltshire, Trowbridge originally had its roots in agriculture, with the wool and textile industry growing out of that ready availability of fleeces. For similar reasons, Trowbridge also had a healthy leather tanning industry for many years. Since the end of the 19th century, both those industries have declined in Trowbridge and are now gone completely.
With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Trowbridge area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.
From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Trowbridge or Wiltshire, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.
