A HAWORTH Main Street business has re-opened in a new premises on the same street.

Cobbles and Clay art cafe has moved up the road to take up residence in the building which used to house Ye Olde Bronte Tea Rooms and Gift Shop.

Jill Ross, who owns and manages Cobbles and Clay, said her cafe opened for business in its new home on Saturday October 25.

"It was half term, nice weather, so we've been really busy, which is great," she said. "I'm thrilled. The new building is beautiful."

She added that Venables book shop, which is also in Main Street, would be leasing her former premises.

Mrs Ross, who lives in Oxenhope, said Cobbles and Clay's new base means it has a bigger kitchen and an upstairs space for children's parties and other functions.

"The shop had been empty for a couple of years," she added. "We started work on it in February. We've knocked down walls revealed all sorts of architectural features such as stone floors and open fires.

"It looks fantastic now. A man came in yesterday and said it looked so beautiful he thought I was managing it on behalf of the National Trust, which I take as a compliment!

"We are still doing pottery painting, children's parties, open mike nights and the same sorts of food. We just have more space to do it in.

"It's bigger and better."
