Steve has also known Peter and Keith for over 40 years and has worked for Oakwrights now for just over five years.

Of an evening he also enjoys meeting up with his mates for a game of bowls along with a pint or three. He also loves nothing better than a relaxing holiday in Cornwall with his wife Janette and days out with their grandson.

Meet the Team

Our whole team has considerable experience designing and producing bespoke joinery. We take pride in our work and aim to provide a friendly and professional level of service and an exceptional level of quality, second to none.
You are welcome to visit us so that we can show you around our workshop and explain in more detail the service we offer and show examples of our work.

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).
