W.E. Black has been established for nearly a century and are traditional house builders, using craftsmen to work with the very latest materials to achieve higher than the required performance standards.


We believe this knowledge and experience is unrivalled in the industry.


W.E. Black Ltd was founded in Uxbridge in 1919 and between the Wars built over 3,500 homes in West Middlesex, which are today still highly sought after.

In 1973 Eric Gadsden became Managing Director and the company remains entirely family owned, with Eric’s daughter, Sarah, a Chartered Surveyor, now Planning Director. The area of operation now extends across the Chilterns and the Vale of Aylesbury, as far as Oxford and Milton Keynes and towards London and specialises in high quality developments.

All W.E.Black developments feature a notably high specification as standard, including many finishes which would be charged at extra cost by national housebuilders.

With the family background in the Vale of Aylesbury dating back over 300 years the Directors enjoy the benefit of many close relationships with land owners and agents enabling the Company
to acquire some of the very best locations available.

The Company also enjoys long standing relationships with many tradesmen and suppliers extending back as much as 50 years. It is the benefit of this skill and expertise which is passed to our purchasers when they move into a new W.E. Black home. 



“Designed with Thought – Built with Care”

Our History


Whilst incorporating many of the very latest materials, we also use traditional craft skills and most of our tradesmen have at least thirty years working experience. All of the materials we use more than meet their required performance standards, and most are personally selected by our Directors.


When you purchase one of our homes, you gain the benefit of this combined knowledge and experience, which we believe, is unrivalled in the industry.

The NHBC Quality Award given to our site agent at The Glebe, Berkhamsted is testimony to the care and attention we give to all our developments, big and small.

"The finish on our WE Black home was excellent, much better than our previous new build property. Since we've moved in, Sue has gone out of her way to help us with things, such as sourcing a matching cupboard door for our kitchen. Their after sales service is brilliant"
