Business overview


Robbie Savill is proprietor of Wm. Newham & Sons. As a time-served, traditional blacksmith, he has spent his much of his working life - some twenty-five years - around fire-places, making wrought iron fire-side equipment, canopies and solid-fuel stoves. This background has given him a lot of experience in the maintenance of safe, efficient household fires and a very natural progression into becoming a sweep. He was trained by Norman Capstick of Gibbs and Lund, who is considered to be one of the best sweeps in the country. Robbie also happens to come from a dynasty of sweeps going back many generations on his mothers side. Indeed, the name William Newham was well-established as that of master-sweep in the early 1800s. Robbie's comprehensive service enables him to deal with every aspect of the fire, from hearth to chimney pot, and he does so with total pride in his work.

Excellent Service
I rang Wm. Newham & Sons after a chimney fire because they are HETAS registered. They came out the next day, did a fantastic job and gave invaluable advice on lining the chimney even though it meant passing the work on to another company. They were clean and tidy, polite and arrived when they said they would. I will be using them again and would recommend them highly. Ian. Launceston
