(The website link that was here no longer works) Audlem Online continues its series on local retail businesses in the run up to Christmas with Audlem Mill.

Audlem Mill is located on the canal wharf, between the Bridge Inn and the

Shroppie Fly. It's one of Audlem's best known historic buildings. The two

retail floors have a wide range of goods of interest to all the family.

Audlem items

Most of these feature a painting of Audlem Mill by Audlem artist Sheila

Webster. Wooden jigsaws in three sizes (very challenging!), mugs, boxes of

fudge and shortbread, keyrings, fridge magnets, teapot stands, table mats,

coasters, etc.

Giftware

"Old Tupton Ware" ceramics (in the style of Moorcroft); ceramic animal salt

and pepper sets, toast racks etc; "Northern Lights" scented candles in jars; jigsaws of canal and rail scenes; dinner candles in a wide variety of

colours ("fork handles" for £1.50!); telephone and pillar box money boxes;

jewellery by Helen, made in Audlem; and much, much more.

Paintings

Always a good selection of original art. Featured works at present include

those by local artists Sheila Webster (also some framed and unframed prints
