I was looking at it on Google Map - just up the river (or maybe down) from Mad. :)

Only just spotted this thread. The Merrythought factory is 10 minutes walk from me and they still make lovely bears some of which I stock. They have their own shop so no point having the full range. :roll: They don't do any repairs at the factory, if people contact them they put them in touch with my shop as I also run a teddy bear hospital :D

They used to flood but they have built some defence walls along the river bank which means it is about 10 years since the factory was underwater. They have even done a bear in waders and a rainhat from the time they flooded in November 2000 :D

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

This was my favourite Merrythought, but I had to sell him, he was too large & I had nowhere to keep him. OH refused to have him on our bed. :o :(
