Robert Glynwoods -

Rob is from a construction and civil engineering background and after leaving school worked for a number of years in general building in Somerset.  In 1986 he started the stonemasonry and carving course at Weymouth College while training with  Architectural Sculptors Ltd of London, who he continued to work for after completing the course.  The work was varied but always highly skilled - including carving and repairs on City churches and Rochester Cathedral, the repair of  London statues and fountains, and letter-cutting.

 

Rob went on to work in Australia for 2 years where he worked on new and historic buildings, notably carving a new coat of arms for the government building in Hobart.   On returning to England in 1991, Rob  worked as a stonemason, carver and site manager based in Dorset and Somerset before establishing Glynwoods & Plint with Andy in 1998.

After studying Archaeology at Leicester University Andy worked as an archaeologist in London and Italy for 3 years.  Pursuing an interest in historic buildings he started a stonemasonry apprenticeship in 1983 with the traditional craft firm Rattee and Kett  of Cambridge, and worked for them for 4 years on colleges, Ely Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.  He went on to work for English Heritage in London and for Axtell Perry and Symm masonry of Oxford.

 

In 1992 Andy completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Architectural Stone Conservation at Weymouth College and then  worked as a stonemason, conservator and site manager for a further 6 years.  At this point he and Rob established Glynwoods & Plint.
