Hugh exhibits at a number of shows, details of which can be found on the Events page.
Orders can be placed and delivery arranged by contacting Hugh directly. You can also arrange a visit(by appointment) to his workshop in the historic Black & White village of Pembridge.
After working for many years as a builder and building surveyor, Hugh decided to develop his passion for designing and making garden products.
It started with a few roof and floor slates left over from a building project. He created some bird boxes in different styles and put them up on his garden fence. The result was really encouraging. The enthusiastic response from his neighbours (and some nesting Blue Tits who successfully produced a clutch of chicks…) inspired Hugh to create new designs and his range of unique garden products continues to grow.
Hugh sources his slate from Snowdonia, Cwt-y-Bugail quarry (“shepherd’s hut”). The enduring and attractive quality of Welsh slate combined with Hugh’s designs bring art to your garden and luxury to the birds who visit.
