Phillip Gregson has run his own wheelwright’s business for the last 10 years from his workshop in Southport. The craft runs in the family and he is a fourth generation working wheelwright. As part of his training Phillip attended Hereford College, where Liveryman Robert Hurford was his course tutor..
Besides building and repairing a whole variety of wheels he is very keen on demonstrating his craft and has done this at public events and shows all over the UK. Phillip has a strong interest in Heritage crafts and helping ensure that they continue to survive. He spoke on the subject of wheelwrighting at the Heritage Craft Association Spring conference that was held in March 2013 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
