Welcome to The Truggery

The oldest trug shop in the world!.

We have been making Sussex Trugs in our workshop and selling them from a little shop attached to the house for over a hundred years.

Our trugs are still made using traditional methods and materials. We use locally coppiced sweet chestnut for the frame and the willow for the boards and feet is mainly a by product of the cricket bat industry. Trug making plays a small but important part in the conservation of ancient coppiced woodlands and is one of the reasons trug making needs to be preserved as a craft.

As the demand for Sussex Trugs is high and there are so few skilled trug makers, we have had to limit the range of shapes and sizes we make and at times you may have to wait for your trug to be made. Despite this, we still try to keep in stock at least six different sizes and others can be made to order.

The shop does not have regular opening hours, although we usually open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. It is best to call first before making a special journey.

To make enquiries or for mail order, call 01323 832314 or email info@truggery.co.uk.

Coopers Croft, Herstmonceux, HAILSHAM, East Sussex BN27 1QL
