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.

Victorian Seaside

This delightful book contains a nostalgic selection of photographs from The Francis Frith Collection of Britain's seaside resorts in their Victorian heyday, when they were the favourite destinations for the traditional British holiday. In this fascinating book you can see the Victorians padding in the shallows, enjoying dips from bathing machines, promenading, crowding to watch the beach entertainers, or simply taking in the 'ozone'. The photographs are accompanied by an intriguing text taken from a Victorian guide book, offering an impression of how these resorts were viewed at the time when the archive photographs were taken. Evocative and atmospheric, these stunning images will transport you back into a bygone world. They bring us a strong reminder of the simple and diverse pleasures that the old-style British resort offered to many generations of tourists in the past.
