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.

My Childhood - a Memory of Hornby.

As a child I spent many a happy summer holiday in the castle grounds. My  aunt was cook at the castle and my uncle worked the land. From what I remember I think it was then owned by the Clutterbuck family. My aunt and uncle lived in the lodge just down the hill from the castle near the church. Somewear in the lake is a necklace belonging to my mum as my aunty and her used to go in the old rowing boat they had. She lost it while they were messing about. I hope to try to revisit the castle one day and take my children to see it, the lake and the old ice house if it is still there.
