GOES OUT OF BUSINESS
Regret to announce that Hamilton House Limited has gone out of business as of 14 Sept. Please do not place any orders. They provided our online ordering facility via www.witchwoodrecords.co.uk, and looked after the stock of CDs. Really sorry, as Tony Attwood who ran the place, and all his colleagues, were so helpful. Tony remains a director of Witchwood Media Limited, the Strawbs' record label.
