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.

Memories of Wingate

My dad was Station Master from1953-57.we lived in the Statio House.It was the happiest time Loads of stories.My best friend was Julie Stockport Iwent to Wellfield Grammar School.My sister Jill and I were very sad to leave.

My father was manager of the colliery in Wingate until late 1952. I went to Wingate Primary School in 1951. Other notable pupils, not in my year, were the novelist Barry Unsworth and Geoff Caygill who I met in Hull where he was teaching science.

Just wondering if any one remembers the station hotel pub? My grandparents ran it for a while and I'm interested in the history of it. Any thing at all would be very much appreciated :)

In 1951 to 1959 I I lived at Colliers Arms wingate with my grandmother Mary Elizabeth Merricks (she had lived there a long time) and my mother Ivy Piper also sister Christine piper. My name is Marianne. I am interested in finding the history of colliers arms. I know it was a gravel pit in the 1800’s Owned by lord baron howden (...Read full memory)
