All in Makers

Hilary Johnson Handmade

Whilst in Devon recently, staying at Amberstone Manor, my good chum Tanya and I had some free time to mooch around the village of Chumleigh. Recalling a shop from our walk through the dark village the evening before, a shop that appeared to sell bags (Tanya's weakness), we headed to 15 Fore Street and discovered Hilary Johnson Handmade.

Making Charcoal with Black Fox Woodland Produce

Black Fox Woodland Produce is a local company, set up my my husband's cousin and his father. When I heard they were burning charcoal I legged it down there as fast as  I could to catch part of the burning process. It was fascinating to watch and I will be heading back soon to learn more and share more photos, in the meantime I hope you enjoy these photos...
