Gravel Hill’s roots are in prop making for film, theatre, TV and commercials, making all manner of weird and wonderful creations for Production Companies and also bespoke furniture. Over the years, we have made pretty much anything and everything from replica caveman’s clubs, civil war cannons and replica munitions through to restoring vehicles and of course lighting!!!
The lighting side of our business has grown considerably, so much so, we rebranded as a lighting company in 2012, although we still do prop making as well.
Because of our roots in prop making, we have become known for doing what other lighting companies can’t do…something just a little bit different and our work can be seen in bars, pubs and clubs all over the UK and worldwide. It is this background that enables us to be the company we are today, innovators and creators.
Its not just bespoke we do, we also source and re-commision vintage lighting, particularly industrial factory lights.
We up-cycle almost anything and turn it into a light!!
We have a restoration service for antique and vintage lighting. From simple re-wires to cleaning, manufacturing parts that are broken or lost and sympathetically ageing the parts to bring heirlooms and valuable lights back to their former glory.
Gravel Hill Lighting have our own design & manufacturing facilities working in metal, wood, resin, glass or whatever is required to get the job done. We are strong supporters of British industry and what we don’t make ourselves, we work with a host of extraordinary talented people that exists in the South West of England, “Made in the Cotswolds!!’
We are a UK based company, with strong ties to the USA and have a base in Florida.
Our name is from a road in the ‘Deep South’ in Georgia, where one of our Directors grew up ‘Gravel Hill Road’.
