Arts and Crafts
A beautiful small garden centre located in a rural location. Lovely tearoom serving homemade traditional food, dogs welcome. Easy access for limited mobility. Gift shop and reclamation shop in our onsite barns also gives interesting things for our home and garden.
I’m a textile designer maker,weaver and wool merchant working with farmers in Bowland to promote the use of wool …. a wonderful, readily available natural resource! I buy fleeces direct from the farms which are high nature value and low intensity.
The fleeces come from traditional hill breeds including Lonks, Lancashire’s own ancient breed. The fleeces are spun into yarn using minimal processing at a small mill in The Peak District.My work sells through galleries and wool through yarn retailers in the North West.
Housed in an imposing former chapel in the heart of town, The Emporium is a unique setting of unique interior design and delicious food. Whether it’s a latte or a lunchtime glass of fizz, this elegant old building has been lavishly converted to create three glorious floors of eating, drinking and shopping. Pop in for a coffee and freshly baked pastries, meet friends for lunch, toast a successful shopping trip with a cheeky afternoon glass of fizz or step out in style for a special celebration dinner.
