The Hillbrush Timeline, Live at Visit Hillbrush

Our Hillbrush timeline has been a long time in progress, with all of the image hunting, composition and design happening behind the scenes in secret. We are utterly delighted to tell you that the timeline is now up in our visitor centre and looking amazing! It features an extensive history of the company, including tidbits of info, dates that directors started working at Hillbrush, how the company has developed along with the rest of the world, and many photos spanning 1922 to the present day.

Each piece was individually printed and placed on the wall by our good friends Freestyle Designs in Bath who do such superb work. You can see a snapshot of the timeline being installed below.

Here is the finished artwork. Of course nothing beats coming to Visit Hillbrush to see it in person!

It’s A Classic!

We recently spotted this beauty in our car park at Visit Hillbrush in Mere and we just had to share it (with the permission of the owners, of course). Our visitor centre is the ideal place for a classic car meet up, where owners can gather, admire and discuss their vintage vehicles! We have a spacious car park so there is plenty of room for everyone. Not to mention we are in a picturesque location in Mere. Our restaurant is open so it would be the perfect opportunity to grab a bite to eat and a drink while you’re here. Our gorgeous south-facing terrace is designed for those long, sunny days!

What are you up to this weekend?

If you’re out walking or cycling this weekend with friends, family, or even just your dog(s), why not drop into our visitor centre where you can rest and enjoy a relaxing cuppa and cake, or go all out and order yourself some lunch from our amazing menu?

It would also be a great opportunity to check out our brush making museum, which features interactive and tactile displays and tons of information about brushes. Our museum is still expanding and we are adding more components, so it’s definitely somewhere you could easily come back to and learn more.

Perhaps you could buy a nice product from our quality gift shop, too, and give it to that special someone. :)

Everyone is welcome! We would love to see you.
