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.

Walsh Manor - a Memory of Crowborough.

Reading past memories of Walsh Manor brings back memories of mine. At about 1937 we moved in to the cottage at the manor as my grand parents part-ran the manor with a Mr Lindred. The manor then was a home for severely disabled and disfigured people from London hospitals. My father ran the farm my mother was head cook at the manor and my eldest sister was a nurse there. It was lovely on the farm where as kids we all helped, even with the milking. During the Second World War years we used to see all the bombers heading for London and the Doodlebugs which terrified us, they were being shot down and you never knew where they would crash. We went to Whitehill School and had to walk to and from school as we had no free transport those days. We eventually moved to Nightingale Cottage which was part of the estate. I went back to see the Manor a few years ago and how it has changed. As I am 81 years old now I guess that will be the last time I will visit Walsh Manor and relive my childhood days which I will always cherish.
