Advice for Icy/Snowy Conditions
In adverse weather conditions, please call to check we are open before making your journey. This applies especially to Saturday mornings when we operate skeleton staffing.
Access to much of our site involves travelling up or down a slope. In icy or snowy conditions please take extreme care when walking or driving on our site. We would strongly recommend that our customers use the Brickkiln Lane "Goods Inwards" Entrance to access our site in such weather conditions instead of the main front entrance.
We will always make every effort to accommodate those with physical disabilities. Our factory is a very old and rambling building (it was a Victorian teapot factory in a former life) and access to our upper showroom, classroom and WC’s is only made possible through the use of temporary ramps. Please speak to us before visiting so we can discuss how to best meet your needs.
