Tim Foxall is a maker of quirky wooden spatulas made from locally grown wood at his unit in Haltwhistle. You’ll find a spatula for just about any occasion. They are meant to be used but many people buy them because they like the look and feel of them. Tim sells his spatulas all over the world!
When Hexham Abbey developed their visitor centre and cafe, a branch of an ancient pear tree needed to be removed and Tim Foxall was commissioned to make a seried of table number markers for the cafe using the pear wood from that branch. Keep an eye open for those when you next visit the cafe!
