Ways to Stay Safe

This should definately keep the virus out! Actually this is Lex in his diving gear last summer. He had seen our famous Beerenberg Roll Neck Pullover and thought it would be just the thing to keep warm during cold winter dives but sadly the roll neck wouldn't work with all the gear. Well Lex is now as happy as a sandbag as he has recently received our new Erebus Boat Neck Pullover. Its made from the wool from Black Welsh Mountain Sheep which is not dyed or processed so it retains the natural lanolin. He has been wearing it on deck and under his dry suit and says "its the warmest I have been". 

The good news for you is we have just added them to our "Save Arthur Beale" stock at the reduced price of £99.00! Just enter our "Shop" and find the "Save Arthur Beale" section where every item is reduced in price. We have added stock control so you can see how many we have left.

Don't hang around because we won't be able to get more stock for a few months at least!

Take care, but maybe no need to wear all that diving gear for your expedition to Tescos!

What planets are they from?

What planets are they from?
Corona Virus is just one of those problems we have to cope with but Arthur Beale also has to contend with the thoughtless actions of the Local Council and our Letting Agents! Neal Street, just around the corner from Arthur Beale, is described as “one of the most eclectic streets for shopping in London” yet when I took a stroll down the street just before Christmas there were 16 empty shops. Most were dressed up with fancy graphics saying “Exciting Retail Opportunity” but let’s face the facts,...
