Just a quick message to let you know our opening hours whilst we move...

We will be at our usual address from now until Saturday 26th March (closed on the 25th for Good Friday).

We will then re-open on 1st April at The Old Works, Corn Street, Witney (next to the bus depot); 8am-5pm Monday to Saturday.

If you need anything for the week in between, please do try to think ahead and order the week before. If you desperately need anything, call us on 01993 704 611 and we'll see what we can do!

Thanks for all your custom at Bridge Street. It will be sad to leave such a wonderful shop, but we think you'll like our new location – the space is much bigger and we'll have our own parking spaces right outside. 

We hope to see a few familiar faces during our first week!

We're painting our beams with Inchyra Blue by Farrow & Ball.

Inchyra Blue

Pronounced: with a ‘ch’ as in China, not a hard ‘c’ sound.

This is inspired by a bespoke colour made for Lord & Lady Inchyra at beautiful classic Georgian Inchyra House in Scotland. Inchyra Blue is used on the exterior doors of their very impressive byre (or barn) which was restored in 2013. It nestles at the bottom of a rather grey and imposing brae (or hill) so needed to have a depth to it but also be sympathetic to its dramatic backdrop and work with the moody Scottish skies.

Inchyra Blue, like many of Farrow & Ball's colours, is difficult to put in a box. To some it reads grey and to others green, but what is for certain is that it is the perfect alternative to charcoal for use on walls in contemporary homes. However, it is just at home on the exterior of traditional properties. Its uncertain colour creates an unmatched moodiness especially when combined with Black Blue or Vardo. For the less adventurous it also works perfectly with all the Architectural Neutrals.
