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.

More about this scene


Caption for Altrincham, Old Bank 1897: Carriages await the call to duty in the old Market Place; it was here that B Goodall & Co, bus and carriage proprietors, had their office, though we do not know if the vehicles seen here all belonged to them. Though most people would have taken the train to Manchester, a Goodall carriage hired to take 3-4 persons would have cost about 9s for the trip. If required to wait and then bring the clients back to Altrincham, it would be charged out by the hour.

Memories of Altrincham

We saw when we visited Altrincham

I have lived all my life in Altricham and I am thinking that these houses were opposite the library in Altrincham, that used to be next to the Stamford Hall. I can't remember the name of the road but these cottages had slate roofs in the 1960's when I saw them as a child. All the buildings were demolished in the late 1970's when Petros developments built what is now Rackhams etc .....

The large corner "shop" on the left was the showroom of North West Gas where you could pay your gas bill. This is now Dawsons music and instrument shop. The corner shop on the right was Hawkins tailors, on two floors. This is now a MacDonalds restaurant.

I remember walking past the tea bar on my way from George Street to the bus station to catch either the 71 or the 80 to Stockport Road/Hare and Hounds, Timperley. I did this every day whilst being a pupil at North Cestrian Grammar School
