Manninwood Traditional Carpentry Ltd
Ballanorris Farm,
Isle of Man

Manninwood Traditional Carpentry Ltd is owned and run by James Hampton. James is approaching 20 years experience in the building industry, having started at a very early age on steel frames with his father. He later gained a first class BA (Hons) degree in Architecture, and a MSc with distinction in Development Planning from the Bartlett School at U.C.L. before graduating to timber and achieving an NVQ in Carpentry and Joinery. After dabbling in cabinet making he managed to gain valuable experience of heavy oak framing and staff relations with one of the larger oak framing companies, before setting out on his own.
