About Priors

November 10, 2008

written by Vicki Bale


Priors Reclamation was founded by Vicki Bale and Martin Foley in 1998. Initially the business dealt in reclaimed flooring and then grew into other  reclaimed materials. Over time we have refined our range to specialise in reclaimed flooring, reclaimed doors, victorian doors, oak doors and door furniture and window furniture.

We work with a small group of specialist suppliers to produce traditionally made products to sit alongside the reclaimed materials we offer. We operate from a 4,500 square foot warehouse on a trading estate in deepest Shropshire and welcome personal visits (assuming you can find us!)

We have both spent our working lives in retail operations, buying, marketing and consultancy. Between us we have worked for Marks and Spencer, Woolworths, Thomas Cook, Birmingham Midshires and Dollond and Aitchison. We decided to pull out of our big company jobs to start our own business and have never looked back.

In 2012 due to Martin’s ill health we decided to concentrate on the period ironmongery side of the business, door and window furniture and bathroom accessories. We moved to Unit 10 on the same trading estate in Ditton Priors and dropped the Reclamation side of the business. In 2013 Martin sadly passed away but Priors continues with Vicki at the helm. We miss you lots Martin!

Our business is founded on good personal service, keen prices and good quality. We are ably assisted by our team of chocolate labradors!

We hope you will enjoy browsing our product range on the website. For any additional questions or advice do not hesitate to call on 01746 712450.

    In this day and age people don’t seem to have time or want to bother with positive comment but I recently purchased some Georgian style door knobs which looked as if they could have been original and some window furniture which looked really good and of good quality. The service was impeccable and friendly and the price fair. i would recommend Priors to anyone doing a restoration project .

    Ordered at 3.30pm delivered by Midday the following day. To say I am impressed is an understatement. Superb service, with this big very mixed order. I cannot recommend Priors Rec enough. Thank you.
