Terra Cotta Tour of London

Boston Valley Terra Cotta has been working alongside architects, building owners, and contractors to manufacture terra cotta facades for restorations and new construction for over 30 years. Our knowledge of terra cotta manufacturing has afforded us the opportunity to work on some exciting new projects across the pond. The completion of 30 Broadwick, Quadrant 4 and the Rathbone and Newman Passages, in London, England, highlight Boston Valley’s product emerging in the UK.

“A large portion of Britain’s Victorian and Edwardian building stock was constructed wholly or partially in terra cotta and faience. Almost every major city and provincial town now possesses some “pot” edifice: whether it be grandiose Flemish renaissance insurance company office or more modest eclectic Romanesque junior school or public house.”

– John Fidler, Featured in The Manufacture of Architectural Terracotta and Faience in the United Kingdom issue of the Bulletin of the Association for Preservation Technology, 1983

With a rich established history in traditional English architecture and a new demand for innovative terra cotta facades for new construction – Boston Valley will be continuing to expand our portfolio of projects in the UK.
