J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd Tannery
A family-run tannery in Devon is believed to be Britain’s only remaining traditional oak bark tannery still in production.
J & FJ Baker & Co Ltd is based in Colyton, Devon, and has been owned by Andrew Par’s family for 150 years – although a tannery is said to have existed in the area since Roman times. Here Mr Par outlines the process used to transform hides to leather.
Apparently the website is down so I hope the Tannery still exist until today.
