Ron Legge established the business here in Branch Road, Mellor Brook over thirty years ago. Following a career in the Royal Navy, Ron's interests led him to picture framing where over the years he gained recognition as a Guild Commended Framer. Whilst based in Mellor Brook he introduced Britannia Framing School, which saw many people continue in the industry and open other framers/art galleries nationwide. Under his guidance his daughter Merryl, with him built up a reputation for quality bespoke picture framing and Fine Art.
Today the picture framing and art gallery continues under the care of Merryl, and Ron's grandson Matt, who joined the family run business in 2007. Matt's early interest in Photography came as a result of seeing images both framed and displayed here at Britannia Gallery. His most memorable, being a picture of a lighthouse with a wave crashing into it. Matt has brought his own additional touch to the business with ''Matt Connell Photography'' having gained experience as a Ships Photographer with P&O Cruises after completing his HND.
The customers need is always at the forefront of Britannia Gallery''s business ethos with over 200 mouldings on display together with many more options.
By maintaining a relatively small number of suppliers we are able to provide and indeed maintain our high standards to the customer.
