Teme Valley Heritage Engineers
Adam Marriott currently operates as the
Teme Valley Heritage Engineers Ltd.,
after a good number of years gaining experience working with several independent
millwrighting companies, to fulfil the need for a smaller flexible and practical approach to millwrighting.
Having a family background in farming and having been fascinated by old machinery since an early age, Adam started out restoring
vintage tractors at the age of 10. Following a degree in agricultural engineering and work with highly experienced millwright,
Vincent Pargetter, Adam returned back to engineering. However hungry for a challenge and with his contract up he returned to
millwrighting, something he finds both challenging and interesting, and so worked for IJP Building Conservation and undertaking small
freelance projects eventually setting up in his own right.
Adam has worked on various projects for both individuals and companies including:
It is always difficult to give comparative projects as mills are individually unique and even with similar tasks the problems and
execution can be very different from planning to execution and completion. The company relies greatly on its reputation for reliability,
practicality, service and quality tailored to clients needs.
