We have a new luxury foldable seat available now to buy online, price £52. The frame is made from Rose wood and the seat is made from strong leather, held together with strong fixings. This lovely seat folds up nicely and can be carried over the shoulder with the leather shoulder strap.
This very sturdy seat is great for picnics, bird-watching and outdoor events.
We are very happy to introduce a new range of handmade thumbsticks, hiking sticks and shepherd’s crooks available to buy now online.
A very meticulous man in Norfolk has set about hand carving a variety of sticks from British materials, including; Deer Antler thumbsticks with an English Hazel shank, Buffalo horn handled sticks and thumbsticks with a hidden calling whistle.
All of the sticks are made using either British Hazel, Chestnut or Ash and locally sourced handles.
We are also offering a bespoke service, so that you can have that extra-special walking stick made just to the right height and detail (for example, you could have a 37 1/2 inch thumbstick with three silver plated bands are the top of the shank and a lovely hand-carved Rosewood handle)
Ordering a bespoke stick usually takes between 5 and 10 days to be delivered to wherever you like (UK addresses only) and will make the perfect gift for someone special.
We are happy to announce the arrival of our new umbrella shooting sticks available in racing green and a multi coloured umbrella too.
Umbrella Shooting Sticks combine an adjustable walking stick, a comfortable seat and an umbrella all in one! They also make excellent gifts as they are very handsome and can be delivered to you, boxed, in 24 hours! (to UK addresses).
Our two umbrella shooting sticks have a stick height of 84 cm and a seat height of 68 cm. The metal work is aluminium and the seat is made from real leather. We also stock shooting sticks without umbrellas, of which there are four altogether, including a very popular economy model at only £28 plus P&P. Our umbrella shooting sticks are £99 plus P&P.
We are pleased to announce that we now offer a crop to size service for any walking stick bought from www.walkingsticksonline.co.uk that has a wooden shaft. Most of our wooden walking sticks are one-piece and are of a standard height; 91 cms or 36 inches. So if you have just lost your favorite walking stick that was just the right height, you can now get a replacement from us at exactly the required height.

So, Happy New Year again and watch out on those icy pavements!
I bought my dad a walking stick making day course for his birthday last year and he cannot recommend it strongly enough. We all spent a lovely weekend in Dentdale in the Yorkshire Dales and my dad spent one day in a little workshop in the scenically lovely Dales.
Ivy Cottage is in its 7th year of running their popular ‘One-day Stick Making Course’ in the workshop situated in Dentdale. Could this be the ideal gift for a birthday or Christmas present?
Brian Bannister of Ivy Cottage (sticks4you) says, “To ensure individual attention, we only take six people on each course. During the day you will make and complete a wooden headed crook. No experience is necessary. We start at 8.45 am and finish at 4.30pm. The fee for the full day course includes a tasty lunch and you can take the stick you made home with you.”
Highly recommended weekend in a beautiful part of the country. Excellent views, walks, pubs and people.
Yes, you can beat the cold weather and still get out and about without worrying about skidding over on the icy pavements. Try one of our Anti-slip Ice Grip attachments. The device fits on to any size walking stick and provides a superior grip on icy surfaces.
As you have seen, most of our brass handled walking canes have been out of stock for a very long time now! But good news, the end is in sight. The brass handled canes will be back with us in June, in a matter of a few weeks.
We are very sorry it has taken so long as these are very popular sticks, mainly due to their fantastic value but also because of their functionality and “ideal gift” value. Most of them unscrew into several parts and some have hidden flasks inside for your favorite tipple.
Our supply of the brass canes has now been secured, so we will always have them in stock in future.
