We are a Family run business, established in 2001 by Richard Tanton and his wife Sonia Tanton. Richard has been involved with the Agricultural Engineering industry since 1971 and has a wide and varied knowledge in this area.
Blakewell Services Ltd started from a small premises just outside Barnstaple called Blakewell, hence the company name, after trading in second hand tractors and machinery for several years the business began to expand and take on various Agricultural and Horticultural dealerships, which resulted in needing larger premises and a move to our Mill Road site in Barnstaple. Since then, their eldest son Luke Tanton , Son-in Law Robert Ridge and sister-in-law Sandra Reed have all joined the business at our Barnstaple depot, Luke an engineer in the workshop taking on various Agricultural and Horticultural repairs and servicing, Rob as a Salesperson and part time engineer and Sandra works along side Sonia in the office.
Our Hatherleigh depot (which was previously Devtrac) opened in 2013, and was managed by Rob until it closed in 2022.
The business then expanded again with the acquisition of a small premises at St. Johns Garden Centre in Barnstaple, specialising in everything Garden Machinery, this depot was run by Jon who is still one of our salespersons.
In March 2022, all 3 depots were consolidated into a new larger permises in Barnstaple – Parkside, Newport Road.
