The name ‘Lewsey’ is derived from the Lucy family, who once owned the land on which Lewsey, Lewsey Farm, and Lewsey Park were built. The Lucys were the lords of the manor from 1305 to 1455, after which the manor passed on to the Wingate family, who were the lords of the manor of Toddington. The old manor house was situated partly in the parish of Luton and partly in the parish of Houghton Regis, but most of it was destroyed by a fire in 1832.

Lewsey is a much older locality compared to Lewsey Farm and Lewsey Park. It was originally built on land off Dunstable Road in the 1950s, along with a hospital. At that time, it was a fairly rural suburb, surrounded by farmland on all sides, including the original Lewsey Farmhouse to the north. The estate’s architecture is typical of its era, featuring a mix of square, large windowed houses and many bungalows with similar designs, often featuring a bay window at the front.

Mortice locks, which are commonly referred to as 5-lever locks, are the primary locks on many doors )Internals & External doors) and are inserted into a pocket on the side of the door. Insurance companies often require that an appropriate mortice lock be fitted to provide coverage, with the most common standard being BS3621. You can easily check if your lock meets this standard by examining the faceplate for the BS3621 stamp, along with a date and the British Standard Kitemark. 

We can recommend alternative locks that meet the BS3621 standard and our locksmiths carry these locks with them at all times, so we can replace your old locks with ease and efficiency. Our skilled professionals use specialised tools and techniques to ensure a smooth installation process, so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a secure and reliable lock without any unnecessary hassle. To replace an Insurance Approved 5 lever Deadlock, simply arrange an appointment at a time that suits your schedule with LU Locksmith services by calling this number: 0800 707 4203.

Gate locks are locks specifically designed to secure gates. Gates are often used to provide access control to properties, gardens, and other areas that require restricted access. Gate locks are essential to ensure that the gate remains secure and cannot be opened without proper authorization.

There are several types of gate locks available, including:

  1. Deadbolts: These locks are typically used for solid metal or wood gates. They are mounted on the inside of the gate and require a key to unlock.

  2. Combination locks: These locks use a combination of numbers or letters to unlock the gate. They are often used for garden gates and other small gates.

  3. Magnetic locks: These locks use a magnetic field to secure the gate. They are often used in commercial and industrial settings and require a keycard or code to unlock.

  4. Keyless locks: These locks use a keypad or biometric scanner to unlock the gate. They are often used in residential and commercial settings.

  5. Latches: These are simple locking mechanisms that are often used for garden gates and other small gates. They can be operated from either side of the gate and do not require a key.

It’s important to choose the right type of gate lock for your specific needs, as different locks offer varying levels of security and ease of use. Consult with a security professional or locksmith to determine the best gate locks for your property.
