to "All about Tea"
Victorian Teashop in Matlock Bath presents this special website
which is all about tea, with introductory notes from myself, Aunt
Agony, in my inimitable style – and why not? I think it's
a great idea.
This website is separate from the main Victorian Teashop site and
is dedicated to the subject of tea in all sorts of ways, as you
can see from the page links above. Like all our designer chap's
other work, it is intended to entertain as well as inform, so let's
hope it does for his sake. Meanwhile, I shall do my best to help
designer, who thinks he owns the place, by the way, will be adding
to the site as time goes by if he finds new information he can be
bothered to work with, having said that, he has done all this and
all the other sites too, so perhaps I am being a little mean. In
fact, he has recently added a new section about collecting tea cards.
As already mentioned, we are based at The
Victorian Teashop in Matlock Bath, Derbyshire, which has it's
own amusing website at the link above and I must just mention that
it also contains my own 'agony page', where I sort out all those
silly billies who write in with problems relating to tea.
are almost as passionate about Matlock Bath as we are about tea
and opened The
Victorian Teashop as part of our Life
in a Lens Museum of Photography and Old times, which is upstairs
on the first floor. I've never looked at it myself, but I have walked
through it occassionaly and I can say that it looks rather good,
if a little creepy, with all those mannequins staring away like
they're expecting something – they follow you with their eyes.
I'm sure some of them have written to me at my agony page –
God knows they look like they need help, hanging around in those
Victorian surroundings all day without a cup of tea in sight.
I digress. Our cherished designer (I had to say that) has provided
a number of websites which he insists you will be interested in,
including a Live
Web Cam site featuring Matlock Bath and also a website featuring
into what could make Matlock Bath a better experience for it's
residents, business people and visitors.
has also produced a lovely pictorial website presenting Matlock
Bath at its very best, which simply invites the would be traveller
to take a look and is called Visit

am asked to inform you that (apparently) this website will be developed
with loving care as time goes by. All the websites are re-developed
and updated from time to time and one or two include news information
and weblog content (don't forget my agony page). The Matlock Bath
Web Cam is updated every minute of everyday between dawn and dusk
– subject to technical difficulties, of course – which
I am told are very rare indeed.
soon, and very dear regards – Aunt Agony.
