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.

1 Manor Way - a Memory of Woodmansterne.

My Grandparents lived at 1 Manor Way. In 1946 my father returned from Canada to find that I was a few months old. He had returned from the war in April 1945, however he had to return to Canada in 1946 to demob. When he returned to England from Canada, my parents lived with my grandparents at #1 along with me. 1 Manor Way was the home of my grandparents until their deaths in 1987. After that, it became the home of my uncle Jack. Since Jack's death in February 2012 it has become the home of my younger daughter, Kathleen. I have wonderful memories of my childhood visits to #1. My grandfather loved to garden and kept the gardens in the front in wonderful colour. Hopefully, my daughter will be able to return the property to its former state.
