Gaddings Dam is known as Britain’s highest beach…

It was built as a top-up reservoir for the Rochdale Canal that runs through the Calder Valley where we’re from.

The high winds give some right turbulence to the water and over the years the gritstone bedrock has eroded and washed up as a golden sandy beach. The wild swimmers and inflatable-carrying day trippers love to lounge here. You’ll find lots of people there on sunny summer days although the hardcore will be there throughout the winter too.

This is a happy shirt and people go up to Gaddings to be happy, so there you go!

Made for us in Wales

As in many parts of Britain, when the big brands moved to offshore manufacture, the highly skilled cutters and machinists lost their jobs – but they didn’t forget their skills. And now with new fire the Welsh dragon returns!

Within the next few years Treorchy Sewing Enterprise aims to bring experienced people back into the textile industry and train young people to join the workforce, all doing meaningful jobs that they can be proud of.

We are supporting this great project with plenty of orders.


100% cotton. Wash gently. Low or no spin. Line dry.
