Call Jim: 07789 552703

We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anyone and will put forward your name to the Wells Diocesan as a trusted and respected craftsman.

Mrs V.J. Curtis

Hewish Chapel, Crewkerne


“We have been renovating a Victorian school for the last six years and have been extremely lucky to have employed a number of first class tradesmen who have undertaken the work to a very high standard.

When I first considered Jim Turnock to replace the front hamstone windows with leaded lights, I had a little trepidation. He is a young man and I wondered if he could have had the time to develop the craft skills required.

I certainly need not have worried. He completed the work to the highest standard. He was well organised, thorough, methodical and timely. The work was of a very high order and looks outstanding. It is admired by everyone who passed by.

In addition, Jim was extremely clean, and tidied up thoroughly when he finished. He is a friendly young man and a pleasure to have on the premises.

I am pleased to recommend Jim Turnock to anyone who wants a first class job that requires a high level of skill. I am sure it will not be long before he is one of the best craftsmen in his field thoughout the whole country.”

- J. Woodhouse, Somerset

“Dear Jim,

We are so delighted with our glass window, and shall be a good advertisement for your talents. Should you wish to see it again, or show anyone else, please just give us a phone call. We will not hesitate to pass your name on. Thank you again, it has transformed our new home.”

- Lisa and Paul

“I am absolutely DELIGHTED with the panel. I keep staring at it! It just makes me smile. It is everything I hoped that it would be. It completely evokes the emotion I have when I’m stood with the dogs on  the top of the hill, looking across the valley, but it also has a pleasing abstract quality at the same time. It captures the spirit of the plain beautifully and succinctly.

Thank you Jim so, so much. And also your joiner; he has made a beautiful job of the frame, it sets the panel off wonderfully and also suits the old cottage down to a tee. It is a lovely piece of joinery and he made it perfectly to the dimensions.”

- K. O’Driscoll.

“It gives me great pleasure to enclose our cheque, being full and final settlement of your invoice.

Whilst we appreciate that the sum we agreed for the work would be ****, it was felt that because of the standard of workmanship and the way in which the project was completed that we would like to reward your efforts by paying you a small bonus.

May we also take this opportunity to assure you that we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anyone and that we will put forward your name to the Wells Diocesan as a trusted and respected craftsman.

Should you at any time want to show any prospective clients an example of your work, we would be happy to arrange for you to take them to the Church to view your work first hand.”

- Mrs V. Curtis

“To Whom It May Concern,

I Would have no hesitation in recommending J.M. Glass (Jim Turnock) for glass work of all natures. Mr Turnock replaced pieces of the delicate old leaded light windows in our Church, repaired a pair of bevelled edge carriage lamp glass as well as the more normal glass replacement tasks around the household, all in an exemplary way and at a very reasonable cost.”

- D. Treasure.

“Dear James,

Just a few lines to tell you how pleased we are with the panel that you made for our summerhouse. I was sat in it this afternoon trying to soak up some of the very welcoming spring sunshine. It is really effective with all the different colours. I shall have to save yo to have the opposite window changed; perhaps you could come up with another design, a kingfisher perhaps, to keep the ‘pond’ theme.

I shall pass on your name, as quite a few people have commented as it is visible form the road.

- Mrs S. Westcott

“Jim Turnock has over the past few years carried out work for me as a specialist glazier, producing new work and restoring old. His work has always been first class, his manner is always exemplary and his prices very fair. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim to anyone requiring high quality craftsmanship in his field.”

- Mr P. Thomason

Thank you so much for your amazing work changing my poppies from red to blue in my new house in honour of Great Uncle Eric Bailey. I couldn’t be more thrilled with what you’ve achieved and I think Uncle Eric Would be extremely happy too.

He made an unauthorised exploration to the Tsangpo Gorges in 1913 with Captain Henry Morshead of the Survey of India. Their adventures led them to the Rong Chu Valley, a gorge on the upper Tsangpo. It was in this valley that Eric Bailey spotted a tall blue poppey at the margin of the forest and pressed it in his notebook - now called Meconopsis baileyi.”
