C L Parker & Sons, as the name suggests, is a family affair. Father Charles founded the firm and sons Darren and Simon have followed in his footsteps.
All of us are time-served – a badge of honour for a true craftsman – and took on extra advanced training before honing our skills in the only possible way: hour after hour of working with wood.
Our constant aim is to hold buildings together with nothing but timber. No glue, no nails, and we only use steel when the structural requirements absolutely demand it. Our pride comes in using mortise and tenon joints and hand-drawn oak pegs – just the way it’s always been.
Based in rural North Yorkshire, we have many satisfied customers all over the north of England where, we’re proud to assert, absolutely nobody knows oak like we do.
