About Edgefold Homes

Meet Jack Seddon, our Managing Director

If the name of our Managing Director, Jack Seddon, sounds reassuringly familiar, it’s because he hails from the Seddon family, representing five generations of building industry experience and 120 years of construction heritage, innovation and integrity.

Today, the Edgefold Homes team carries forward this proud tradition with a mix of trusted construction techniques and bold contemporary design flourishes. Every brick, floor plan and perfectly designed fitting is built on the same solid foundations and shaped by the same values, beliefs and dedication to detail that has defined our family history.

Building on 120 year foundations – where it all began

Edgefold Homes has a rich construction heritage – underpinned by family values and a strong social conscience.

George and John Seddon 1897


Our origins date back to 1897 when brothers George and John Seddon, left the coal mines and founded their own business, equipped only with a handcart and their ambition.

G & J Seddon 1920s


In 1920 G & J Seddon became a limited company and throughout the post-war era provided much needed employment and construction expertise during a time of recovery.

Seddons 1960s to 1970s

1960s – 1970s

With the growth of social housing in the 60s and 70s house building became a key focus for the Seddon business as their social conscience came to the fore.

Over the years the Seddon family name became synonymous with quality, integrity and a willingness to quote competitively.

Seddon History


Through hard work and strategic acquisition, the original small business grew into a much larger, diverse entity with separate divisions for construction, maintenance and plant hire.

George Seddon Signing


In 2013 the Seddon Group reorganised and restructured and 6 years on from that in the April of 2019 the George & Stephen Seddon branch added another string to their bow in the house building sector, Edgefold Homes.

Today the company operates as a totally independent trading entity but still under the ownership of the Seddon family to the same set of family values and beliefs, led by fifth-generation Seddon family members.

I'm really happy I chose to buy my new house from Edgefold Homes. I'm very pleased with the build quality and the attention to detail. I love the location and outlook and my favourite room is the open plan kitchen. It's great buying from a small developer and getting to know everyone in the team. Thank you to Kirstie for all your help during the buying process, and to Jack for providing a good after-sales service.

We love the location and tranquil setting of Alderwood Gardens, it is so peaceful and quiet and the neighbours are all lovely. Our experience with Edgefold Homes has been effortless, we found them really easy to deal with and very professional and helpful even from a very early stage. They give a very personalised service and as a customer they made us feel valued. The attention to detail and well thought out design makes our home feel very spacious and we particularly like the large garden and large driveway of our Edgefold Home.
