Tudor admire roofer Justin Sollis on his London to Athens bike ride for charity

Justin Sollis is attempting to do a 2,000+ mile bicycle ride from London to Athens in a 3 week time-frame.

Accompanied only by fellow bicycle enthusiast Steven Lock, they are currently in Italy having started on June 1st 2019. With only the equipment and needs they carry with them on their bikes, this feat of endurance is being done to raise funds for their charities.

“I am in awe of these two men, and absolutely admire their physical strength and mental determination. To ride over 2,000 miles, at a rate of 60 to 100 miles per day, for no greater self benefit than their own pride, and without any publicity, puts me to shame when I consider my own lack of exercise and widening girth.” says Paul Lythgoe, Managing Director at Tudor Roof Tiles.

A long time user of Tudor Roof Tiles, Justin clearly shows his praise of Tudor by wearing our logo proudly on his T-shirt. Thank you Justin and Steven.

Barnet Physic Well is a mineral water spring which was thought to have therapeutic qualities.

In the 17th century a resident well-keeper was appointed to supervised the use of the spring and by 1663, Barnet's water was being sold in pubs on the Strand by the barrel.

Samuel Pepys visited in 1664 to try the water, and found 'many people a-drinking'. In 1800 it was still declared that the water 'cleansed the system, cleared the skin and cured hangovers

Last year Barnet Physic Well underwent extensive refurbishment work, including re-roofing using Tudor's medium antique tiles. The wellhouse and was officially reopened by the Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Reuben Thompstone, on 20 November 2018.

Over the past few years, I have twice been asked by my team to submit Tudor roof tiles for consideration in the Build It magazine awards. The first submission was in 2014, and was presenting Tudor’s traditional Handmade clay tiles. WE WON !
The second submission was this year (2018), and presented Tudor’s ability to Hand make clay roof tiles to bespoke sizes and designs. WE WON !!
We showed that Tudor were able to react without any delay, producing prototypes and then actual production. We achieved this in far less time than quoted by competitors, and were on average up to 40% cheaper in price. So … this is all due to the excellent team we have at Tudor Roof Tiles, so my thanks to you all. You deserve these industry wide aclaims.
