EIGHT GENERATIONS OF BUILDING EXCELLENCE SINCE 1798
1798 – This was the year in which Nelson won the Battle of the Nile and Jane Austen began her first novel, Northanger Abbey. It was also when a master mason established himself in the Wiltshire village of Aldbourne, beginning what would become a building dynasty. His name was William Moulding.
The business that William developed has now been passed down through the reigns of nine monarchs, two World Wars, many economic cycles, over two centuries of trading and eight successive generations of his family. In the early twentieth century, William Moulding’s great-grandson, Richard, moved the firm forty miles south to South Newton. Today it continues to trade from there, under the same family ownership and management.
