Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

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 Alnwick, the Gatehouse c1955: The 11th-century castle was extended by the Percy family following its purchase by them in 1309. The shell keep was rebuilt by Henry de Percy, and the second Earl is thought to have built the barbican and gatehouse around 1440. As we can see here, two square towers flank the archway, and these are in turn supported by a pair of octagonal towers. Between the two sets of towers there was once a moat spanned by a drawbridge.

Memories of Alnwick, the Gatehouse c1955

Hi Pete, we still have, in our family, a much loved painting of Dunstanburgh Castle which we bought from you for 7 pounds one night in the Birdcage ! You won't remember me but I married David from the Nags Head! Found this site when looking for paintings by you. Missed one at auction recently. The Dunstanburgh one has always been treasured. Happy days !!! Sue
