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 Winlaton, The Village C1955: In 1690 Ambrose Crowley relocated his ironworks and workers from Sunderland to Winlanton and Swalwell. The works at Winlanton forged light tools, while that at Swalwell went in for heavier items, including cannon, anchors and chains. Crowley was ahead of his time; he built cottages for his workers and the community had the serv- ices of a doctor, schoolmaster and a parson. Crowley even established an arbitration court at which workers had representatives. The court settled all matters relating to pay and working conditions.
