A rather old one, really – but nonetheless grand. It all started with Albert Hibbitt – an original stonemason who established his presence in the industry in 1890 in a small workshop on Alpha Road in Cambridge.
A short time thereafter our founder moved his workshop to Victoria Road where John, Mark & Paul Hibbitt – all direct descendants of Albert himself – manage the company today. It is here where we have carried out many successful restorations including St. John’s College Chapel, Audley End House, Ely Cathedral and Wimpole Hall.
Yet it’s not just our three descendants who are long-serving members of the company – in fact, some of our team have been with us for over 30 years and the majority of our workforce have gained invaluable skills through our apprentice scheme, which extends the basic knowledge they’ll have learnt during their time at Stonemasonry College, in Weymouth Dorset.
Brushing up on new techniques and polishing up the traditional ones is always a hands on job at Hibbitt Masonry – thanks to our busy and productive workshops and current work site jobs that encourage both variety and enthusiasm in a range of settings both historic and modern.
Over the years we’ve built up a reputation of our own and a reputation among other specialised firms and it’s through these close relationships that we’re able to draw on and compliment each and every project utilising the skills and experience gained to achieve the outstanding results we and our clients expect.
During our 125+ years of trading, we have been involved with the restoration and conservation of countless prestigious historic buildings. Yet the most notable in our portfolio include many of the Cambridge Colleges, Churches, Cathedrals and National Trust Properties.
Areas covered:- Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and London.
