England's last oak bark tannery: J & FJ Baker

When I chatted with Emma and Jon during Foster & Son's NYC visit, they mentioned taking a tour of J & FJ Baker, which appears to England's last remaining oak bark tannery. Apparently there's been a tannery on Baker's site in Devon since Roman times. Let's hope it continues well into the future!

In fact, there is another British tannery, Thomas Ware, which uses vegetable tanning : http://www.thomasware.co.uk/tannedsoleleather.html
