Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Caption for Abergynolwyn, the Village 1968: There is little apart from the Mini van parked in front of the terraced house on the bottom right of the picture to give away the date of this view, which looks north over Abergynolwyn. The village sits in its valley partly in the parish of Tal-y-llyn and partly in Llanfihangel. Most of its cottages would have been lived in by quarrymen, who laboured in the Bryneglwys slate quarry, long since closed.
