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.

Church Inn - a Memory of Tintwistle.

I lived at the Church Inn until I was 15. I worked with John Horrocks wholesale greengrocer - we visited Smithfield Market every day - his son in law was called Wilf.
I have been trying to find some information on the pub at Woodhead called George and Dragon - it used to be at bottom of road to Hole Moss, I can remember being in there - they had a pianola which played itself - any info would be appreciated.
Regards

Ken Batty

Remember the pub well, almost straight across from the junction of the Holmfirth / Huddersfield road that lead up and over Holme Moss, so steep there was a risky looking escape road to avoid 'Devils Elbow' on the original steep descent, never went into the building but passed it on many occasions, didnt they eventually have part as a cafe
