WR Parr are cabinet makers and antique restorers and were established in 1928 by Walter Royal Parr at Thompson's Lane, in Cambridge.
Now based in Isleham, the company is run by Ian Willis and Gill Miller with two full-time staff restorers, Alison Marsh and Bill Bates, and continues the traditional methods of restoration started by the Parr family.
Ian started work for Walter's son, Roy, in 1976. He said: "Today, most of our work comes from private customers and the Cambridge colleges.
"Together, we have a wealth of experience and can offer marquetry, turning, upholstery, veneering, carving and French polishing.
