We are proud to be part of the Heritage of Bridport in our Historic listed rope making building, indeed we still have the long rooms at the back of our shop where machinery was bolted to the floor and the ropes were laid out and, the aunt of one of Livingstone’s staff earned her living making rope here many years ago.
As you can see from these before and after shots, huge improvements have made the Bridport shop a lot more visible than it was even 10 years ago. If you go to our website, you will discover an even older picture of the shop and a bit more history, not surprising as we have now been an established business in Bridport for over 45 years!
As part of Bridport’s Heritage, we are participating in the Ropewalks Fair by entering into the themed shop window dressing competition and have combined traditional nets and some of the rope that we sell with some of our fabulous new seaside fabrics.
We have featured some gorgeous boat fabric in the window along with a brightly coloured fish cushion and a lobster pot. We also have tonnes more fabrics inside the shop as well so come on up the stairs and see what you can discover in this lovely old building.
