Our shop is now open 11-4pm every day except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. For the safety of staff and visitors we've introduced social distancing measures and changes to payment, which will be via card only. In line with government guidance, you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces. Please bring one with you. It is through your purchases that we are able to continue looking after Canons Ashby for everyone, for ever. Thank you for your support.
