This former Victorian hat factory is packed with Arts and Crafts and Aesthetic Movement furniture and objects from Gothic Reform to the Cotswold School – all of which can be picked up at reasonable prices. Even the most basic dining tables and chairs are sturdy and of good quality. Expect to pay £2,000 for an oak Arts and Crafts table and four chairs by an unknown maker. Specialised pieces that you wouldn’t be surprised to see in the V&A are a real draw – and some are strictly POA. Top-drawer makers include Godwin, Dresser, Rennie Mackintosh and ‘Mouseman’ Thompson. Heal’s bedroom furniture is often in stock and look out too for smaller items such as Liberty & Co dressing-table sets and Glasgow Style ceramics. There are regular exhibitions as well as excellent Arts and Crafts shows twice a year.

There's a fantastic contemporary furniture exhibition on right now ~ '21st Century Furniture IV', on until the 10th of March. An opportunity to see, buy, collect or commission a piece of sublime craftsmanship, produced y the most talented designer makers who practice the hand skills of the Arts & Crafts era and combine them with the design sensibilities of today.
