About Us | Wardhaughs of Hexham

Over 50 Years of Service

Wardhaughs  is an independent  specialist  electrical shop situated  in the heart of Hexhams historic market place. Jack Wardhaugh was a radio ham in the golden age of the wireless, he established his shop to service and repair radio and television sets when this technology was in its infancy.
Word soon spread and as his business  grew Jack soon needed to employ another engineer and so took on Gilbert Rourke as his right hand man. After many years of loyal service Gilbert took over the business on Jacks retirement. Over the next 30 years Gilbert  continued to serve his evergrowing customer base and has given Wardhaughs a name for friendly and knowledgeable service. In 2010 and now  firmly establised in Hexhams folklore Wardhaughs continues in the hands of Gilberts niece, Carrie.

While keeping up to date with the latest technology our shop pays homage to its past  with a feel from the 1940s and 50s, the golden age of television and radio.
