Wet Autumnal Weather - The Big Switch On Is ON! & Drying Racks Are Out!

I am still catching up from laundry generated by 3 days camping & beach rambling over a week ago! Then in comes the Autumn rain, eager to dampen my spirits and hair on the school run and make my washing line redundant all but for the storage of rain drops along its length. Perfect drying rack weather!

The same seems true across the country, as you lovely folk switch your faithful friends back on and deploy freshly purchased Blake & Bull racks to dry your linens.

"So glad I saw these on your website. I wish I had purchased them sooner." Carol, Sept 2019

Drying laundry on an Aga range cooker"A real asset!I have lots of washing that can’t be tumble dried so the dryer is ideal. A full load is dried and ironed overnight!" Andree, September 2019


Drying rack loaded with laundry washing drying rack suitable for use on an Aga range cooker"Great Bit of Well Made Kit - I grew up with a Rayburn range cooker so I’m very used to using it for drying. We’ve just moved in to our new home that has an Aga range cooker, which the round hot plate covers don’t lend themselves to stacking laundry as well as the Rayburn. The Blake & Bull dryerresolves this problem and more, because we’re able to dry more and it is tidier." Tom, September 2019

There are 13 things that you can use your rack for, and we are sure that there are even more! What do you use yours for?

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
