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.

More about this scene


Caption for Whitchurch, Market Hill C1955: The lord of the manor, Hugh de Vere, Earl of Oxford, was granted a market charter in 1245. He laid out a market place outside the castle ramparts which still survives, although it is somewhat encroached upon. It was never a very successful one, and was unable to compete with Aylesbury, Winslow and Buckingham markets. By the end of the Middle Ages it had ceased to function, and the town reverted to a large village.

An extract from Aylesbury Photographic Memories.
