A106: Victorian Box Awning                           CW101: Canopy Tops / Altrincham Market

When architects, Lovelock Mitchell, took on the task of reinvigorating Altrincham Market, they wanted to create a ‘total’ experience, with shopping, eating, drinking, and entertainment all under one roof.

They chose James Robertshaw to supply and fit the features of their envisioned traditional destination marketplace, from tops and skirts to canopies, and folding arm market awnings to traditional box awnings – perfectly reflecting the provenance, craft and traditional values of the market.

The results have been incredibly well received, with Altrincham Market becoming a top destination in the North West – it was even voted ‘Best Local Market’ by Observer readers in October 2015.

“We’re always on the lookout for companies who make our job easier. It’s nice to be able to go to someone you like and trust, who gives you the right answers, costs and designs. A partner like James Robertshaw, who ticks all those boxes, is always nice for us as a contractor.”
