Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

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.

Caption for Morley, Queens Street c1965: Looming over the town is the tower of the town hall, clearly more than a little influenced in its design by its more prestigious neighbour at Leeds. It was built in 1895 by G A Fox, with a portico formed of six composite columns. Until recent times textile mills jostled the building.

I climbed the old quarry tip at the junction with Corporation Street -now (...Read full memory)

I remember visiting Tingley in the late 1950s and staying at a house opposite the Scarboro Arms. I have tried using Google but the area has changed so much it was difficult to identify exactly the area. The people were called Peatfield and they had a beautiful daughter called Maureen and a son called, I believe, (...Read full memory)
