Visit to Owen Barry : Street Society
Protecting the past with an eye to the future

Visit to Owen Barry

11 members arrived at  Number Three, The Tanyard, Leigh Road for the visit.

Cindy Barnstable was extremely entertaining and informative whilst giving her tour.  The company was

started by one of her ancestors who came from a tanning business in Wiltshire and passed on through the sons.

The leather arrives there already prepared and dyed ready for the staff to hand make their wonderful products.

The company makes bags, coats, purses, hats and gloves.

50% of the manufactured goods are exported and the rest sold in the UK in specialist shops round the country.

Their coats are guaranteed to last a lifetime!

There was a very welcome cup of tea or coffee  with a slice of cake after the tour.

At the end of the visit there was a raffle in aid of charity – a purse  was won by Barbara Cowell.
