British Wool strengthens depot network

British Wool has increased its network of local collection centres across England, ensuring convenience and accessibility for producers delivering their clip. 

A new intermediate depot has been opened by kind permission of John Errington, located at Ladyswood House, Roundthorn, Penrith operating until the end of September.  From October, the Penrith intermediate depot will operate from David Gillett’s site at Crown Farm, Unthank, Skelton until April 2019.  4 new collection centres further strengthen British Wool’s service offering, supporting producers across Cumbria, Bedfordshire, Wiltshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.

A depot search facility, part of the new British Wool website, supports the expanded network, allowing producers to locate their nearest depot, collection centre or haulier via a postcode look up facility.

Andrew Hogley, British Wool’s Head of Business Development and Producer Services said “We’re committed to continually improving our service to producers. Our depot network is designed to provide producers with the convenience of dropping their wool locally, whilst minimising transport costs.  The new search facility on the website makes it easy for producers to find their nearest and most cost effective options.”

Producers wishing to deliver their 2018 clip or request empty wool sheets should contact their local grading depot, intermediate depot or collection centre directly.
