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.

Barney King - a Memory of Witton Gilbert.

I worked at Langley pit and coming home one morning from work on my motor bike, a 350 AJS, I hit the milk cart, Barney was dragging Toby across the road in front of Nuttalls shop having come from hillside, no one hurt, head ight broken, happy days.
