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.

Recently I received my copy of "I Remember When" (I had a friend send it to me) I am extremely satisfied with the quality of this book. I am also grateful to you for choosing some of my own contributions to include in this fine coffeetable book
I firmly believe that the Francis Frith Collection is a wonderful way for us to memorialise our living experiences for others to read.
