70 years in the making
Over seventy years ago, one humble man’s dreams created a legacy that has created memories for multiple generations. Walter Allen started out making beehives in 1946 but quickly saw an appetite for touring caravans following the end of World War 2.
The early years
By the late 50s, Willerby had gone from strength to strength and had moved into ‘living’ holiday homes as they were called and were building their very first residential homes for a park in Exeter.
A little-known fact is Willerby built their first chalet twin unit – now called a lodge – in 1965. It even came with a bathroom and flush toilet as standard!
From strength to strength
In the 2000s, Willerby has ventured in to the housing sector and were creating entire modular residential estates across the UK.
Willerby today is the market leader in the leisure sector for producing incredibly high-quality holiday homes, lodges and unique accommodation for attractions such as Alton Towers and Legoland.
Now creating bespoke residential park homes that are highly desirable and built to the highest standards, with Willerby memories come as standard.
