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 Thurmaston, The Newark Road C1965: A Roman milestone was excavated at Thurmaston, but the name is Anglo- Scandinavian. The village sits astride the Roman Fosse Way, but it is attractive no longer: for the last hundred years it has been in all but name a part of North Leicester. The relatively narrow main street carried heavy traffic to Nottingham, the north, and the east coast. By the late 1950s it had become overwhelmed, and Newark Road, known as the bypass, was constructed on the east side of the village. When this photograph was taken, the road had been open for two years, an arid, treeless swathe, but manna from heaven in an urgent world.
