A Rich History


A colourful past

The origins of this Grade II listed building are not totally clear. It is believed that the main building was built as a home in the eighteenth century for the owner of the dye works next door, one Charles Timbrell.

We have worked very hard architecturally, to produce such a pleasing and beautiful space and open up the vista and access to the river.

It caught the interest of artist Samuel Spode

A copy of an early nineteenth century painting by Samuel Spode showing the yard as it was then, hangs in the restaurant. The original picture is owned by Bradford on Avon museum, close by.

Over the years, the property changed hands many times and was in a desperate state when acquired by the Stay Original Company in 2014. It was totally refurbished and transformed before re-opening in 2015.
