Eric Spencer moved to Deddington in 1935 he brought
with him his skills as a stone mason and bricklayer.
Many examples of his craftsmanship can be seen throughout
Richard’s first memories are of helping Eric build
the stone walls around Deddington churchyard. Richard,
then aged ten, remembers Eric’s meticulous standards
and learned his basic skills from his beloved ‘Grampy
At 19, Richard successfully completed
his four-year bricklaying apprenticeship, and soon had
experience of working in South Africa and in Australia,
where he worked on the new cyclone-proof parliament
buildings in Darwin.
returning from his travels in 1990, his first contracts
came from those who knew him well enough not to be
put off by his youth! And they were right; his extension
to Deddington Health Centre and a full renovation
of the Cartwright Hotel are jobs he is proud of.
