Bingfield is named after Bingfield Street and Bingfield Park in northern King's Cross. This now residential area, sandwiched between the railways lands and Caledonian Road, was once home to the notorious Beaconsfield Building. These were built by the Victoria Dwellings Association and housed at least 1,000 people in five storied walk-ups with external balconies. In Booth’s poverty map of 1898-99 this area of King's Cross was recorded as ‘Lowest class. Vicious semi-criminal.’ – the most extreme rating. Ouch. The bricks and remnants of the Beaconsfield Building were used to build the 'Crumbles Castle', an adventure playground which sits on Bingfield Park today.
Our frames are made in the traditional way, and go through fifty crafted stages of production over a period of six weeks including four separate stages of polishing to ensure a glorious lustre. Most of our frames are constructed with custom Cubitts pins that secure right through the acetate — this is called pin drilling. This process is done by hand and takes more time and skill, but means hinges can be easily maintained.
