Oakwrights Bath is based in Corsham, the heart of the countryside

The company was set up in 2003 by Peter Love, working from a small industrial unit in South Street, Corsham. It gave a good base whilst Peter established the business, and after 5 years, the company moved into our modern premises on the Leafield Industrial Estate.

The majority of our work is within a 50 mile radius of our workshop covering Bath, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds. With ease of access to the M4, our client base extends towards the East (to Berkshire and even into London) and the South (into Dorset and Somerset).
