Studio in the river - Open for Business following the flood
Studio in the river!
07 February 2004
Our furnace is cold and our studio is wet - In the early hours of Friday 6th February 2004 our Coalport studio was overcome with water from the river Severn. The water has peaked and will recede as quickly as it invades.

We will start the cleanup process on Monday morning when we hope to relight the furnace, once the furnace fan has been rewired and rebuilt – water and electrics don’t mix well!
Having just completer a very successful Spring Fair at the NEC we now have a full order book and no studio to make our orders in – but we will soon be back up and running making up all the time lost somehow…
The levels peaked at around 10-12 inches of water throughout our studio and showroom – but looking on the bright side in October 2000 it peaked at 39 inches!!! The river continues to rush past our back yard wall at break neck speed.
