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.

Ewe And Lamb, 17 Bridge Street, Leighton Buzzard - a Memory of Woburn.

I was 10 years old in 1944, and my great-uncle Mr Arthur E. Sims was the occupier of the Ewe and Lamb Inn. I have found on this website that it is now home  of the The Leighton Buzzard Observer! My uncle is listed in the Kelly's Directory of 1936. We had just come back from a brief stay with relatives in Edinburgh as a brief rest from the war. I remember seeing the canal, and on market days the people coming into the courtyard with carriages, or carts perhaps they were called. We stayd there for about three months before returnig to our home in Elm Park, Hornchurch. I remember washing up beer glasses! I went to school in Leighton Buzzard, I barely remember that. Although I remember twisting my ankle on cobblestones in courtyard. Actually quite magical altogether! My family all came to Canada in 1946.
