Derbyshire born, Derbyshire bred, all handmade by me, in a Derbyshire shed! - Rob Thornton


Small Bird Box

Bird box with 30mm diameter hole. 

Ideal for small birds such as Blue Tits and Wrens.

Site box 4-6m off the ground, facing south-east if possible, yet avoiding midday sun and near shelter if possible.


In rural south Derbyshire is the family smallholding, with one field called ‘cow close’ and the other ‘millway’. Although there was never a mill called Cow Close Mill, the ‘millway’ name probably refers to a long lost windmill near the farm, and so it just seemed to fit for my ambitions of a studio and workshop!
