We are a small family business comprising Mick, Jen and Rachel White. We have been making candles since 1971 and in 1978 moved to the old watermill by the waterfall in the quiet village of Wensley.

Visitors may observe the various processes involved in the manufacture of candles including traditional dipping techniques and casting methods. The building housing the workshop was a 19th century water mill – the water wheel still exists and mills have been recorded on this site since 1203.
