Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices.
In July 2007 Witney saw its worst case flooding in over 50 years. Homes and businesses were evacuated and Bridge Street, a major road into Witney and the only road across the Windrush, was closed. About 200 properties in central Witney were flooded, with areas around Bridge Street, Mill Street and West End the worst affected. The new and incomplete housing development Aquarius also suffered a great deal of flooding.
Witney has been famous for its woollen blankets since before the Middle Ages. The water for the production of these blankets is drawn from the River Windrush, which was believed to be the secret of Witneys high quality blankets. The Blanket Hall in High Street, Witney was built in 1721 for weighing and measuring the blankets. At one time there were five blanket factories in Witney but with the closure of the largest blanket maker, in 2002, the Witney blanket industry completely ceased production. The blanket factories that were once a vital part of Witney history, had now been demolished, and is the site of several new housing estates. Witney United FC retains its nickname The Blanketmen from Witneys traditional trade.
Witney has three museums. Cogges Manor Farm Museum, in the 13th-century manor house and farm of Cogges, represents farming and countryside history. The Witney and District Museum has many artefacts and documents representing the history of the town. the Wychwood Brewery has a museum that is open at weekends.
