Nathan Warchol’s parents moved to England from Poland when he was seven recognising a potential opportunity. And it’s proved to be an opportunity that Nathan has grasped with both hands.

This remarkable 22 year old has buckled down, faced up to challenges, and won through as one of the most promising young apprentices in the south of England. Among other awards he was overall Apprentice of the Year at Southampton City College.

“Tony Hughes of HBL Brickwork Ltd gave me the chance and I will always be indebted to him and Neil Digweed, his foreman, who helped me put into practice what I had learned at College”. Tony thinks Nathan has a very bright future ahead of him.

“Nathan is one of the best. He has the skills and the application. HBL was given the contract at Luzborough by both Wyatt Homes and Morrish Homes and it was the perfect site for Nathan because of the very high standard of traditional bricklaying required.”

Nathan cycled for an hour to work and back every day. But still had the energy and interest to deliver rubbed arches, traditional chimneys, Flemish bond brickwork, and corbelling. And then he worked closely with Neil to produce the impeccable knapped flint work on two of the new homes at Luzborough.

“Luzborough was the perfect school for me” says Nathan. “I will be taking my children one day to see what we built there”.

We hope Nathan will also be able to show them Hoe Lane and Whitenap. Perhaps one day it may even be his grandchildren.
