Bat makers near London
« on: May 06, 2018, 04:49:07 AM »

Visiting London in a month and wanting to casually stop by at a bat whittling place to see if I could find something interesting?
Are there any bat manufacturers located within about an hour radius of London?

Thanks.

H4L is a bit further than that, Salix are in Maidstone which is probably about an hour down the a20/m20

Not many I am aware of in London. Warsop maybe an option for you. There are a few good shops though.

Chase about an hour from London. If your staying central west. With the size of London very much depends which part of the city your based in.

I am staying close to Heathrow.
I think Warsop interests me more. Its an old fantasy of mine to own a Warsop.

From Heathrow its going to be a bit of a drive across to Warsop.

Closest I imagine would  be up the M1 to Red Ink.

If you are at Heathrow then go to VKS.
Also Chase are down the M3 mush the best option from there.
Warsop would be most of the way around the M25. So not fun.
