Gary Edwards and Barry Tripp, learned the craft of stone carving. At the age of 15, we realized our tiny town offered limited career choices; we could either take an office job or work with our hands. We chose the latter and spent four years at the renowned masonry school Weymouth College where we earned our Advanced Craft, the highest possible designation. Upon leaving Weymouth, Barry began an apprenticeship with Ray Harvey — the owner of the company — and master masons George Greenham and Charlie Gibbs. Gary soon followed and we spent the next eight years under Greenham & Gibbs' tutelage, restoring some of England's grand churches, abbeys and castles.
In the late 1980's we brought our craft "across the pond" to California and established Millbrook Stone in 1991.
Together with other artisans, we strive to maintain and preserve the heritage of stone carving that has been passed down to us through many generations of talented hands and tireless care. We find it extremely rewarding to create something that is enduring and we hope you will feel the same sense of satisfaction and pride when you bring Millbrook Stone into your environment.
Our goal is to ensure that each of our handcrafted pieces complements and effortlessly blends with existing elements in your home.
