Blakemar Briars will be closed for one week commencing 16/06/2014 – the premises will be open once again on 23/06/2014.

Rose and I are taking a trip down to Loch Lomond in Scotland to relax and see the local scenery.

Any emails sent to us during this week will be answered upon my return, however please bear in mind that my reply may be delayed further while I try to respond to everyone in chronological order.

Any large orders should be placed well in advance of the above date, as it may take some time to construct your order and could mean delayed shipping if left too late.

New Opening Times

01/04/2014 17:42

Please note that from 19/04/2014 Blakemar Briars will no longer be open on Saturdays. We will continue to be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

After many years of working Saturday mornings, I have finally made the decision to reduce my hours to the ‘standard working week’ – allowing me to spend the weekend with my beloved wife (and perhaps even take her out from time to time!).

This decision does not affect the Pipe Club of London, who are still more than welcome to host their meetings at the Blakemar premises through prior arrangement.

Tobacco Price Increase

30/03/2014 16:40

After the recent Budget, the cost of tobacco has once again gone up.

While the tobacco shown on this site is still currently at the same price, once we purchase new stock these prices will increase.

I would estimate that these prices will be amended before the end of April, so anyone looking to purchase that extra bit of tobacco before the prices go up should get in touch asap.

A new category of pipes have been added to the site – Hand Made.

Pipes in this category have been hand crafted by Mike Billington of Blakemar Briars.

The process these pipes have gone through is that similar to our video ‘The Making of a Blakemar Briar Tobacco Pipe‘, displayed on YouTube.

Each pipe is unique, no two pipes will be the same.

More of these pipes are to be added in the coming weeks, stay tuned.

Back to Work

24/06/2013 17:27

Monday mornings are not the easiest, especially hard this morning after 12 days off work.  I have a number of phone calls to return and my inbox is full so please bear with me while I clear the backlog, if you have emailed in the last two weeks, I will get round to replying, but it may take a few days.  Thanks to all of you offering congratulations to Rose and I on our wedding, everything went smoothly the weather was a little blustery, with the odd spot of rain, but mainly fine and sunny and everyone enjoyed themselves.  There was quite a bit of clearing up to do afterwards, but we did manage to get away for a few days to Wales last week.
