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.

More about this scene


Caption for Acomb, the Old Mill c1955: The mill is just south of the village on the Birkey Burn. The miller's house is dated 1728, and the three-storey mill building is also 18th-century. Though normally powered by water, the mill could operate in conjunction with a nearby windmill if there was insufficient water in the burn. Modernisation came during the 19th century when the mill was equipped with a steam engine.

Memories of Acomb

Does anyone have any memories of Wilma Rutherford? I know she lived in Acomb around the 1960s. She was my mother. I would be grateful for any momory no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to you. What was she like? Who was she friends with? etc. Thank you in anticipation.

I remember a Geordie Frazer as we called him, but I seem to remember he was not a geordie. He was a butcher and on the side was a barber - he was a crap barber but it cost next to nowt so maybe you have a link to this..happy hunting.

when I see the photo Acomb the Village, I remember living opposite the Queen's Arms Hotel, with my family Chris and Lucy Henderson, my uncle Billy and Aunt Elizabeth and mam Mary. I was born there in 1955

Does anyone know of a George Frazer/Fraser who lived in Acomb. I think he was a butcher and was good friends with my mum. Any information Thanks
