A. M. Pike Masonry Contractors

over 40 years experience

Committed, skilled & experienced

A. M. Pike Masonry Contractors is a professional, independent Bristol-based business specialising in the craft of Stone Masonry, Stone Cleaning and Stone Restoration. The company is also the culmination of a dream for its proprietor, Adrian Pike, who holds a City & Guilds stonemasonry diploma from City of Bath College. Adrian worked as a dedicated stone mason for almost 40 years until starting his own business in June 2006.

Since then Adrian has been proudly indulging his passion for his chosen artisan craft for his own account, along with an equally committed, skilled and experienced hand-picked small team of employees of various ages, all fully qualified, bringing a valuable perspective of youth coupled with experience to the company’s operations.

a dedicated team

Although the team has worked successfully for some large commercial clients in Bristol (such as the façade of the huge Primark store in Broadmead) and are willing and able to undertake any similar contemporary projects, Adrian confesses to having a soft spot for working on restoring and cleaning historic stone structures and memorials.

His commitment to his craft has earned A. M. Pike Masonry Contractors a reputation for excellence in workmanship, reliability and value for money. Each project is treated sympathetically and sensitively, whether it be cleaning graffiti from a headstone, repairing a weathered stone feature, renovating the walls on a listed stone building, or employing traditional architectural stonemasonry techniques to enhance new builds.

stone masonry experts

Proof that A. M. Pike Masonry Contractors are held in high regard in their area of operation is provided by the fact that most of their work comes from word of mouth recommendations. Friends and family of their many satisfied customers are always keen to spread the word.

Adrian and his colleagues particularly enjoy working with the renowned Bath stone – the distinctive honey-coloured limestone that has been a popular building material in south west England for thousands of years and is still mined in the Corsham area of Wiltshire.

Our stone

Adrian believes Bath Stone is pure perfection for stone masonry, being able to be squared in any direction without losing its beauty or strength – properties that make it ideal for grand architectural projects (such as the famous Royal Crescent in Bath) or smaller ornamental stone features such as fireplaces.

Our monuments

Another area of specialisation for A. M. Pike Masonry Contractors is the crafting, engraving and maintenance of memorial headstones, generally made of marble, granite or Portland Stone. Monumental masonry requires careful client consultation, planning and execution to produce an appropriate and respectful lasting tribute to a loved one who has passed on.

Our expertise

Adrian, with his vast experience and expertise, is able to advise and recommend the best style, shape, letter font, finish and form for a headstone, memorial slab or kerb enclosure to suit your requirements, and ensure it is erected in the relevant churchyard, cemetery or garden of remembrance.
