a brief history
Burrwalk Ltd is the umbrella company for the various activities of Lee Burrett and Sharon Walker, a pair of upcycling, recycling enthusiasts based in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire.
After over 30 years in the IT industry, Lee sold his shareholding in the company he co-founded in 1995, and decided to take on a whole new challenge. Sharon’s history in retail and passion for all things upcycled and recycled led them to open The Shop at Forty in 2014. The shop specialises in retro and vintage furniture, along with creating their own bespoke furniture made from recycled material they find at auctions and reclamation yards.
Having project managed a large extension on their own home, they decided to take on some full scale property refurbishments, beginning with a 2 bedroom flat in their home town of St. Neots. They also manage and let out their holiday cottage in Old Hunstanton, Norfolk.
A combination of Lee’s previous experience with website design and hosting, and their various connections with tradesmen and artisans through the various other projects they have worked on over the past few years has led to them starting a small web design and hosting business, aiming to help other small businesses, crafts people and artisans get their own websites online.
