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.

Church St, Woodlesford - a Memory of Woodlesford.

I was born in Church St, Woodlesford in 1930. The cottage where I was born belonged to
my great grandma's family called Denkin. I attended Woodlesford school which is still being
used for local families. There is a shopping centre called Beechwood now where houses and cottages stood. My gt grandad worked at the local Bentleys Brewery as a cellar foreman. I remember going to the sports day there because it was a special affair because a lot of people from the village worked there. Eventually Whitbreads took over the Brewery and I worked there for a while till it closed in 1984. We had a church also in Church Street which I attended. I would like to mention my son Howard has a website, there are lots of pictures and info - send me a private message for details. He is always glad of any photos etc. I would love to hear from you also who attended Woodlesford School. Thankyou, Betty Benson.
