HELLO! You can be assured a very warm welcome from 

Jamie and Corinna at this delightful antiques shop. 

The main shop is tucked away at 

4, Cheyne Lane accessible from the main High Street, 

and St. Mary's Street.

WHAT DO WE SELL? A wide range of antiques and collectables, vintage, jewellery, rustic garden, man cave, car and garage, and retro barware.

THE BUILDING has been a music business, a fishmonger's, a bookmakers, a handbag shop, and a gift shop. Originally it was probably someone's home, selling produce out of the main living area. The original listed shelving and a fireplace still exist. Access to the single upper room may have been on the outside 

and there is evidence of a stairway which suggests this.

THE LANE's name is pronounced "Chainey" and its origins suggest an oak tree or "oak-hearted". It may have been the name of someone held in high office, like a local merchant, builder or judge. Cheyne Lane was and still is a small thoroughfare between the town's two main shopping streets, and it continues downwards to join the Town Bridge and meadows, and many houses said to have once had secret 

tunnels linking the town.


WHERE ARE WE? Coming up into town from the larger car parks in 

Bath Row, Cattle Market and Wharf Road look for St. Mary's Church with the tall spire and the lower end of Cheyne Lane is just behind the church. Our wall signs are clearly visible. 

If you are in High Street among the shops look for Seasalt and walk down Cheyne lane (unsigned) directly opposite, we are on the left. 

"Stamford Walk" is parallel with Cheyne Lane so walk down by 

Hinds Jewellers, turn left into Stamford Walk and step through the archway next to 

The Stamford Fabric Company to see us.
