BEFORE AND AFTER GALLERY
BONA PRIME DEEP
Poor Middlesex... It’s paid a high price for being London’s smallest and closest county: the victim of all that encompasses 20th century development. Suburban spread in the 1930s (aided by the electric railway); the rise of Heathrow in the 50s; and the final ignominy of losing its status as a county in 1965.
The poet John Betjeman often cited his ‘gallant’ native county in nostalgic evocations of the 1920s:
‘.. a few surviving hedges
Keep alive our lost Elysium - rural Middlesex again.’
What remains of what was once the best farming land near London can now only be found in the northwest between Ruislip and Harefield - and north east in the remnants of Enfield Chase at Trent Park.
Still, there are other pockets in today’s London Boroughs that retain traces of old Middlesex, even if these ‘lost villages’ are little more than a green and an ancient church.
The sturdy triumvirate of Hayes, Harlington and Harmondsworth, despite their proximity to Heathrow, all have worthwhile churches. The splendid Norman doorway in the latter is one of the chief monuments in the old county. Even more surprising - and incongruous - is the survival of the tremendous 14th century Harmondsworth tithe barn.
Ironic then that the undisputed spiritual home of the summer game should be based in what is now central London. Lord’s is still the base for both Middlesex County Cricket Club and the MCC. Father Time overlooks the ground and leafy St John’s Wood to remind visitors of the values embodied in a slower alternative to the flurry of the modern world.

The benefits of using reclaimed wood in your living room
If you have your heart set on installing a wooden floor in your living room that is old, full
of character and is long lasting, then you can't go wrong with a reclaimed wooden floor.
Below we explain the many benefits of embracing the trend for reclaimed wooden
What is reclaimed wood?
Reclaimed wood differs from recycled wood. Reclaimed wood is solid wood that is
simply taken from old buildings and is then used in new properties. It is a far more
difficult process though than simply uprooting and laying as a new floor. The wood will
need to be repaired, then installed and sanded by floor sanding contractors who
specialise in reclaimed wood, and then a protective finish needs to be applied.
It is eco friendly
Many people opt for reclaimed wood because it is the eco-friendly option. This is because you are simply using wood that is already available. No trees are needed to be cut down, and no other chemicals are used in the manufacturing of new wooden planks.
Tough and durable
Another huge benefit of reclaimed wood is that it is incredibly tough and durable. This wood is hard, dense and hugely resilient, making it perfect for use in heavy-traffic areas in your home, such as the living room. As the wood is firm, it is less likely to scratch and warp when walked upon. After it has been given a dust free floor sanding with a floor
sanding machine, a polyurethane varnish will ensure that it lasts for many years.
There is no escaping the fact that reclaimed wooden floors look absolutely beautiful. This kind
of flooring not only looks authentic, it has bags of character and can add much-needed
warmth to any room. As this wood is obviously old, it also doesn't matter if there are a few
notches or impurities in the finish, as this just helps to add to the charm and rustic feel of
this unique wooden flooring.
Just be sure to enlist the help of floor sanding specialists who are experienced in the
installation, treating, and finishing of reclaimed wooden floors.
