LANCASTER ARMOURY CO – UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT!

shiled_roseWe are pleased to confirm that Lancaster Armoury Co, the brainchild of the
late Roger Lankford, has transferred to Matthew Finchen, a young professional armourer who also trades under the banner of Avant Armouries.

promo1Roger Lankford built up this incredible business over the past three decades and his swords and armour have now graced many a battlefield. Matt fully intends to bring Roger's entire edged weapon product portfolio back into production, including a couple of new designs which Roger had been working on.

promo2Matt is now based in Roger's old workshop, will be using the same UK based suppliers and endeavouring to achieve the same exacting standards we have all come to expect from one of Roger's swords.  The biggest change will be in the new armour designs which Matt will be launching at Roger's affordable prices. These will be officially launched at this year's Tewkesbury Medieval Fayre.
You can follow Matt's weekly progress on Facebook.  

promo5Matt and his team are looking forward to meeting you at Tewkesbury, Bosworth and Caldicot, or at his new premises, by appointment.
