Ceramic Manufacturers (Supplies and Services) in Leyburn
Within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, in the village of West Burton in Wensleydale the Nichols family has been making Moorside Cats since 1982. The cats are modelled in clay and given life and their own names in this tranquil, picturesque place with its magnificent village Green and its hidden waterfall Cauldron Falls below which salmon spawned in 2013-2015. but alas none in 2016 as water conditions were unfavourable. We trust conditions will be favourable this year 2017. THEY WERE!! The salmon appeared at half-term (Mid October) and were present for about a week
Here, since 1982 two generations-people and cats have been involved in the business: Shirley and Barrie Nichols and daughter Sarah alongside the family cats Chloe, Orlando, Zoe, Millie and Tilda, and newcomers Ruby, Alfie and Sophie who have all been models for the ceramic, metallic and granite stone garden cats.

The Granite Stone Garden Cats are life-size and life-like, certainly real enough to spook many of the little dogs which come with their owners to visit us. Each of the garden cats is cast solid in a mixture of resin and grey granite giving a rough stone.

"Thank you so much for the Orlando Stone Garden Cat which I received last week. I lost my beloved Ben in July and although he was a brown Burmese he was large for his breed and the stance of Orlando is just as Ben would have sat under his favourite bush. I have placed him there where I can see him from my kitchen window and it gives me a little comfort and a feeling that he is still close to me.
