Horwood Brothers was in business for about 40 years from 1856. They were based initially in Mells and later in Frome, Somerset. Their work is typical of a regional firm of the period and is mainly to be found in Somerset and Wiltshire though they did carry out commissions elsewhere in England, Wales, Ireland and overseas.
Of the three Horwood brothers, Edwin (1834-92), Harry (1838-1917) and Mark (1840-1904), Harry is particularly notable for the considerable success he enjoyed in North America, where he is still remembered via the Horwood Stained Glass Museum
