Garden Shop

Based on D. Norton & Son Ironmongers in the Market Place, Uppingham, Rutland. Home of a respected public school, it’s a very attractive small town and well worth a visit – antiques, cream teas, second hand books, outdoor pursuits gear … all made available in delightful unspoilt independent shops.

It is 17 years since we produced our first Ironmonger/Hardware Shop (sold out) when we lamented the disappearance of such wonderful shops all over the country. Any you might come across now have done incredibly well to have survived the rise of the DIY superstore. ‘Norton’s’ reminds us that they harp back to supplying farmers with their ploughs on display above the door. The proprietor is (fictitiously) A. Titchmarsh or  P. Thrower.
