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 Acomb, the Village c1955: Acomb was once a centre for the lead-mining industry. An old building dating from 1730 is still known as the barracks, a name said to derive from its use as a lodging house for lead miners.

An extract from Northumberland Tyne and Wear Photographic Memories.

Memories of Acomb

Norman was my father and I know he was born in Acomb Northumberland at Middle Farm February 1910. I am trying to trace his roots and would be grateful if anyone has any information.

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

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.

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
