When in Skipton I always pop in as the shop carries the full range of Metcalfe Model kits at good prices. They are well laid out so you don't have to search through boxes trying to find what you want. Carries a good stock of modelling materials; however, there wasn't much in the way of other items e.g. carriages, wagons. But it's worth popping in if you are in the area.

Stocks N and OO stuff plus a fair range of materials and accessories. I chanced upon this shop during a stop-over with no intention of buying anything. Although a bit quiet to start with, the chap was friendly enough; and, yes, I did spend a few bob. Well, his prices seemed reasonable, so it would have been rude not to! If/when I return to Skipton, I shall definitely call in again.

Well i've visited again since my previous post and I must say a big improvement in terms of stock held and also the proprietor seemed much more aware of the presence of customers in his shop; was actually quite helpful when asked about various items and I left after making a purchase this time. Would be happy to return :-)

Visited in nov 2014, proprietor barely looked up from his laptop to acknowledge my presence in his shop and despite my attempts at exchanging pleasantries got a few grunts in return - A total contrast to richard at the train shop in morecambe who cannot do enough for the customer. Plenty of modelling accessories but not much in the way of locos with more spaces than stock in the display cabinets. I was going to inquire about prices for track but didn't want to disturb the proprietor too much so I said my goodbyes (No reply!) and left. Shame.
