For more than 50 years Philip Holder has rebuilt old horse drawn vehicles. There are beautiful traditional vehicles of all types now in museums and private collections and still on the road all over Britain thanks to Philip. As a carriage builder and restorer, Philip has had to acquire a wide range of skills – he is a woodworker with a wide knowledge of Britain’s native woods, he is a wheelwright and Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Wheelwrights, he is a talented upholsterer and a painter. He is a carriage historian with an understanding of how traditional vehicles were constructed, their traditional materials and how they should look. In 2009 he won the Countryside Alliance Award for Best Traditional Business.
