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.

Wharton Hill - a Memory of Winsford.

I remember parts of this photo. I was born in 1956. The shop with the flags was Brooks' bakers I think. The houses just beyond it up the hill must have been demolished in the 60s. I remember there being 'sticky bob' plants where they were - not seen them anywhere else. The steps on the right by the cafe sign were incredibly steep to a young child and gave me nightmares for years. I also remember the salt wagons going to the rail depot at the top of the hill - you could overtake them on foot!
