Walkers Builders Ltd was established in 1871 by our great grandfather, Edward Walker, a master carpenter, who worked from Little Shelford. Edward's three sons followed him into the business, working from the same premises that we occupy today.

 

One of Edward's sons, Harold, had two sons of his own, Brien and Percy, who developed and expanded the business during the 1950s, carrying out many of the new housing developments in Cambridge and the surrounding areas.

 

Today, Walkers Builders is run by Graham and Mervyn Walker (left and right below) who were both required to serve apprenticeships before being admitted to the family firm. They now continue the family tradition of excellence by focussing on providing the highest standards of construction using their proper understanding of traditional skills and craftsmanship.
