Our Best of British

Following the Jubilee, Royal wedding, Olympics and then the birth of a newheart-shape-british-flag Prince - one thing’s for certain, the world’s gone Britannia barmy.

Feeling just a little more patriotic, there are British flags and emblems popping up all over the place; on the retail products we buy, the food we eat... buying British and supporting local agriculture and manufacturing is more important today than it's been for decades.

As a UK manufacturer, we're proud of what we've achieved and represent. So to celebrate all that's British we're paying tribute to some of our favourite British things - and today its the most famous British inventors who changed our lives to become what they are today.  Thnink of any more?
