Since 1823

Aston-Matthews is London’s leading Bathroom Specialist and has been in Essex Road, Islington - in

one form or another - since 1823.

As our bicentenary approaches we are reflecting on our company’s history.

Originally based in Euston Road, H P Matthews was the first Builders’ Merchants in London to hire

out ladders.

Its present trading style commenced in 1966

with the amalgamation of two companies -

H P Matthews Ltd and John C Aston Ltd.


70 Essex Road, c1971

The company moved to its present site at

141-147a Essex Road in 1972 and in the late

seventies commenced a gradual shift away

from building materials to concentrate on

bathroom fittings.

Today, Aston-Matthews offers the widest range of

new cast iron baths in Britain as well as traditional

and contemporary basins, WCs, shower trays and

enclosures, taps and accessories, all sold under the
