About Us

Justin and Kate Miles-Booy run Arc Reclamation Ltd. We share a passion for architectural antiques with our clients who are looking for unusual and original items to suit their homes. Our clients are people who care about the space around them and are not prepared to compromise on the features in their homes. In a world where goods are more and more mass produced, machine made and often poor quality, salvage offers a welcome alternative and we try to stock items that have age, character, quality and still represent good value for money.

The items you see here come from a time when things were hand made in small quantities by skilled workmen using hand picked materials. Old doors for instance were made with timber from trees a hundred and fifty years old when cut down, whilst nowadays trees are felled at half that age after their growth rate slows. The timber does not therefore have the same fine grain, density or character of previous generations. As doors make up a large and very visible part of a house, using old doors can do a lot to transform a space into something special with features that give pleasure and add value to your home.

Having had a business restoring our own properties and working with clients on carpentry and flooring projects for the past twelve years, we started sourcing architectural antiques seven years ago and this has grown into the salvage yard and workshop business we run today. We try to be more than a place that just sells interesting things but also helps you get the best out of your purchases by offering advice how to get the best results, which finishing products to use and to highlight potential mistakes to avoid. We have full workshop, joinery and restoration services for complicated work or special projects.

Please use the site for inspiration, feel free to ring or e-mail to discuss items listed or items you are looking for, and please note due to the volume of stock coming and going not all items make it onto the site. Many clients stay in touch to find out if anything interesting is turning up or if we know where else to look.

Many thanks to all our regulars, it is nice to know we are not alone in how we feel about saving and recycling these things, they were made with longevity in mind and deserve to find good homes and in the process help to reverse the trend for disposable products in this throw-away world.
