Colin Bell Plumbing and Heating
– trading since 1982

Colin began his apprenticeship under the guidance of Len Sanderson in 1968 and continued to work for Len as a fully qualified plumber until 1982 when he established his own business.  When his son Jonathan was old enough he started his apprenticeship with Colin and Colin’s other plumber David.

With the beginning of the new millennium Colin expanded his business by buying out a local firm based in Elvington and doubled his workforce, many of whom are still with the firm today. The work force consists of six apprentice trained plumbing and gas engineers (Gas Safe, Corgi and APHC registered).

In 2010 the company became accredited Worcester boiler installers offering a 5 year guarantee on all new boiler installations.

Colin and his team have always worked to the following philosophy:

  • Honesty – no hidden costs, we only charge for materials used and the time taken to do the job.
  • Reliability – as far as humanly possible to be at the job when specified.
  • Efficiency – get straight on with the job, don’t carry out any unnecessary work.

From below ground to the roof, no job is too big or too small !

We will re-washer your taps or install a full plumbing and heating system. We have other tradesmen that we can call on from plasterers, joiners, builders, electricians etc. Two thirds of our customers are regular and long standing, and most new come from customer recommendations.

Thank You
