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 Ticehurst, The Square 1925: The rendered façade of the Bell Inn, a 14th-century coaching inn, has now been removed, exposing a fine timber-framed building with a conserved interior. The Duke of York Inn is on the left-hand side of the square, and the church is nearby. Whiligh is a 16th-century house; timbers for Westminster Hall in London were cut from trees felled on the estate in the late 14th century. Dunster's Mill House was a 15th-century semi-aisled hall house with an associated watermill; it has now been moved because the old site is inundated by the new Bewl Water reservoir.

This view brings back many childhood memories, I was born in the cottage on the right hand edge of the picture, in 1947, growing up on the farm there, and have lived within three miles of the area for the majority of my life.

Singehurst pond was the place for both girls and boys to go fishing with their bags of dampened bread and makeshift fishing rods. Throughout the season we caught loads and then returned our catch at the end of an outing, sometimes staying out all day. It was an excuse to meet up with friends and other village children (...Read full memory)
