Time Capsules

Your history for future generations. Time capsule are used by schools, companies, councils and even families to record and preserve today’s artifacts for future generations, documenting how we live today.

We manufacture two types of time capsule, cast lead and composite.  The lead capsule is rectangular in shape and the composite type is round with three choices.  Should you wish to mark the site of your capsule we make a large range of commemorative plaques. 

The International Time Capsule Society in Atlanta USA provides a free registry of capsules around the world, making sure that they are properly recorded. They provide a free online registration form for anyone wishing to register.

Recording the whereabouts of your capsule is very important, as many capsules in the past have been lost, due to poor record-keeping (who will know where you have placed your time capsule in hundreds of years from now).

All the products you see on this website are handmade by ourselves from our original designs for your personal requirements.

We have been designing and manufacturing by hand at our foundry in Croft, Lincolnshire for over 40 years.
