Simon Allison arrived in England from his native New Zealand in 1984 and set up Red Bronze Studio in London.


In 1991, after many successful years, the business moved to Cropredy in rural Oxfordshire and became Lockbund Sculpture Foundry.  That same year the first exhibition was held in the gardens and Lockbund Gallery was established.


Lockbund Gallery is situated at the foundry's base in Cropredy where there is a large indoor exhibition space, outdoor sculpture and artists studios. 


Lockbund Gallery holds regular exhibitions in which resident artists, foundry clients and Simon and Jane's personal collection is shown.
