There are two very special windows in the Wiltshire village of Lyneham. They are both in the 14th Century St Michael & All Angels parish church. The impressive stained glass in the east window was the work of 19th century artist Alexander Gibbs, while the modern magnificent window in the south aisle by Henry Haig commemorates the 50th anniversary of RAF Lyneham, the RAF station adjacent to the village.
The people of Lyneham value their windows, both decorative and functional, especially now they are no longer rattled in their frames with the frequent overflights of the RAF’s C-130 Hercules fleet that was based here until June 2011.
Nowadays things are quieter in this village which as MOD Lyneham is home to the Defence Technical Training College, but as the local glazing specialists, Abbey Glass & Windows still has plenty to do here supplying and installing all sorts of glass products in Lyneham and the surrounding villages of Bradenstoke, Preston and The Banks.
We’re the local Lyneham Pilkington Glass agents, market leaders in the manufacture and design of architectural and technologically engineered smart glass for the home and commercial applications – everything from self-cleaning and solar control glazing for conservatories to fire protective and safety glass for retail spaces.
Abbey are experts at installing energy efficient double glazing in Lyneham, and where that’s not possible (like in a listed building) we can fit secondary glazing to achieve the same warm, comfortable, secure and eco-friendly effect.
We specialise in constructing the most beautiful conservatories and orangeries in Lyneham, adding style, space and value to many homes in the village. We’re accredited suppliers and installers of K2 Conservatories, renowned for their quality and flexibility of design. We can give you professional advice to help you choose the right style, glazing options, colours, finishes and roofing system for your conservatory or orangery from the vast range available, so that the extension becomes an attractive, functional asset to your property.
Erecting a bespoke conservatory in Lyneham is a relatively quick process – we prepare the groundwork and then bring the prefabricated, custom-made building for installation on the site, finishing off with all the electrical connections, plumbing if required, flooring and finishing touches.
Another transformational service we provide is the installation of skylights in Lyneham. It’s stunning what can be achieved in a building by letting in extra light, and a highly successful and affordable way to do it is by fitting customised roof lights, skylights or glass lanterns. Brightening up the dark corners of your home or commercial property by bringing in natural light through the roof not only saves on energy bills but has been scientifically proven to raise your mood, reduce stress and improve sleep patterns.
We thoroughly enjoy being in the business of bringing glass to Lyneham, literally brightening up the village with glorious glazing to suit any application. Call Abbey Glass & Windows on 01225 632297 today to discuss how we can light up your life.
