The “Thinking of You” S&DR Hamper


This yummy hamper includes a red S&DR mug, a hessian bag of 40 Mad Hatter tea bags, a tin of S&DR travel sweets, a bar of Rocket dark chocolate, a jar of hedgerow jelly and a jar of apple chutney.  They come packaged in a handy reusable hessian bag with our S&DR logo on the front – useful for packed lunches. If you would like this gift to be for two people, just add another mug to your basket and use the additional information box at the checkout to let us know that they are both to go in the hamper. If you prefer another mug design at the same cost (£9), just mention it in the additional order information box at the checkout and we’ll swap them.

Sadly we cannot post this hamper outside the UK.

The mug: a good and chunky red mug especially designed for the Stockton & Darlington Railway. The mug features a large S&DR with the Stockton & Darlington Railway written along the length of the ‘R’. The mug holds about 430ml or about ½ a pint. The tea: The hessian sack contains 40 bags of Mad Hatter Wonderland Tea blended in Richmond in North Yorkshire and a perfect balance of colour and flavour bound to relieve the thirst of locomotive drivers (and others!).

North Chocolate’s 70% dark chocolate with citrus & popping candy featuring Stephenson’s Rocket. The Rocket wasn’t part of the S&DR, but Robert Stephenson & Co was established by the leading lights from the S&DR in 1823.  This chocolate is very special with North Chocolates being awarded the accolade of ‘Artisan Hero of the Year 2019’ and former ‘Artisan Business of the Year’. This will add Rocket to someone’s life!

The apple chutney: A 110g jar of apple chutney made in South West Durham. The apples are collected from ancient orchards. Edward Pease, the father of the railways, had many apple trees in his garden and we reckon his pantry was full of apple chutney just like this.

The hedgerow jelly: Perfect as a jam or as an accompaniment to cheese or meat, this 110g jar is packed with flavour derived from the hedgerows growing in County Durham including alongside disused railways.

This lovely tin of travel sweets takes its inspiration from a souvenir produced in 1925 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Stockton & Darlington Railway. It features a simplified version of Dobbin’s painting of the opening day of the railway on the 27th September 1825 as Locomotion No.1 and its train passed over the Skerne Bridge in Darlington.

The bag: The sturdy hessian bag which holds your goodies measures 25cm wide x 21cm high (excluding handles) and 14cm deep and features the S&DR 1825 logo on one side. The hamper comes with a small S&DR certificate explaining the railway interest behind each goody within and a card luggage tag for your message.
