Play hard…

I enjoy the moment, never understood the difference between work and play I get a buzz form both. I love riding my motorcycle and spending time with my wife and our Labrador.

Alfred Groves and Sons was established in 1660 and today we are four distinct businesses trading from our Business Park in Milton under Wychwood.

Our contracts division specialise in the renovation, refurbishment and extension of traditional Cotswold properties, along with constructing quality new builds using traditional construction methods.

The Joinery workshop manufactures bespoke wooden doors windows and staircases for our projects, those of other building contractors and retail customers alike.

We have a DIY store and building supplies business, supplying both our own needs, those of other companies and helping local residents with their DIY projects. The shop has been trading for over 50 years; it was rebuilt in 2015 following a fire and today offer s modern setting.

Alfred Groves and Sons own the Business park which provides valuable income from the 37 commercial and seven domestic units.
