Listed Buildings Locksmith
Mr Lock Doc provides precise, caring and professional locksmith services for all listed buildings. Living for nearly 3 decades in an area that has a multitude of listed buildings, many of them Grade 1 and Grade 2, we have had to tailor many of our locksmith services specifically to deal with the antique locks and doors that a lot of these fabulous, precious and priceless buildings have fitted.
We always endeavour to respect the nature of these buildings, and preserve the important provenance of all locks and doors wherever possible and always within the listed building regulations. It is especially important to preserve features and history that can sometimes be hundreds of years old, even dating back to medieval times.
We also provide restoration and repair of antique locks and keys as a professional service, more about which you can read on the page – Antique Lock Restoration.
