Classic Canes Brand Story
In the late 1970s, Ben and Diana Porter bought Warren House, a romantic but ruined property set deep in a Somerset woodland. They fell in love with the location, gradually rebuilt the house and discovered the surrounding woodland was suitable for growing the raw material for walking sticks. In 1982, a small range of sticks was offered to local shopkeepers, who soon demanded a wider selection. The family business grew steadily to include more products, employ more people and serve increasingly far-flung customers. Today, Classic Canes supplies a range of over 600 products to retails in more than 400 countries.
