Leander Architectural

Architectural metalwork casting.

Leander Architectural itself is the parent company and undertakes all the larger scale architectural metalwork projects as well as providing casting and fabrication facilities for the rest of the group. Foundry, offices and workshops are at Buxton in the Peak District. Typical metalwork projects are public art commissions, glazed canopies and arcades, bandstands and shelters. Smaller projects include bespoke street furniture and signage. A large fabrication and assembly workshop allows all but the largest structures to be completely ‘dry-run’ assembled before despatch. Leander also provides pattermaking and modelling facilities and is the home of the group’s design offices.

The Royal Label Factory, also based in Buxton, concentrates on traditional signage and retains many of the casting patterns it developed in the 1930s for county and town council signposts and fingerposts. Major elements of the workload also include blue plaques for civic trusts and societies throughout the UK and signs of all kinds for heritage agencies – particularly the National Trust, Historic Scotland and Cadw-Welsh Monuments. In recent years, the RLF has become heavily involved in military memorials – restoring war memorials, adding new memorial tablets and creating one-off memorials and regimental insignia for all branches of the armed forces.

Tanat Art Foundry is situated in the tranquil and beautiful Tanat Valley at the village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant and works closely with its next-door neighbour Castle Fine Arts on complex and difficult sculptural bronzes.
Through the sculptural work, Tanat has also developed relationships with interior designers and now produces a bewildering range of bespoke architectural and decorative castings ranging from tree branches to wine cellar doors! Tanat provides bronze casting and finishing services for the other Leander companies, particularly on plaques, murals, toposcopes and coats-of-arms.The quality of Tanat’s work is exceptional and examples can now be found far beyond the UK, recent examples including Crete, the Falklands and even the Antarctic land mass!
