Phillpotts Boarding House Tea Towel


Phillpotts house is a boarding house as part of Bedford Boys School, Bedford, Bedfordshire. It has a rather nomadic history. It was originally founded as Glanyrafon in the late nineteenth century and was housed in the centre of town, near what is today the Higgins’ Gallery. In 1950 the house was re-named Kirkman’s after a distinguished housemaster and moved to De Parys Avenue. In 1993, the house moved again to the building that had been the lower school boarding house, Farrar’s, and Phillpotts was opened by Paddy Ashdown, himself an old boy of Kirkman’s.

About Tabitha

I am passionate about capturing a memory, whether it's of your favourite holiday, your home town or your Wedding. I do this by creating travel prints inspired by the old railway posters. I create everything in house using Adobe Illustrator. Personalisation is free and if I don't have a print you'd like in the range, just ask me!
