The five businesses are Obsidian Art Gallery, Fabric HQ, The Buckinghamshire Craft Guild, Freya Jones Spinning & Fibrecraft and By Hand Books.

Obsidian Art Gallery was established at Layby Farm 18 years ago. It has free to visit exhibitions throughout the year by selected British artists and makers, including paintings, photography, glass, jewellery, textiles, sculpture, hand-crafted furniture and more.
