About Woodstock

Here at Woodstock our aim is to provide the finest quality handcrafted cricket bats suitable for the best players in the world.

Our Background
Woodstock are based just outside Ludlow in the South Shropshire Hills where we manufacture the bats and offer a comprehensive repair and refurbishment service bringing old bats to life. Our services and products can be purchased online or by telephone and we welcome personal visits by appointment.

Woodstock bring traditional qualities from the past and combine them with modern techniques so that our bats are geared towards the highest levels of the modern demanding game. The bat profiles that we produce are cutting edge in their design and performance.

At Woodstock we use the finest hand selected willow harvested in the South of England and the best quality cane from Indonesia for the handles. It takes over 3 hours of detailed workmanship to create 1 handcrafted Woodstock bat and involves over 25 individual processes. Great attention is taken in every process to ensure a beautifully balanced and finished bat from the shaping of the cleft with draw knives and planes to the time spent in the sanding, polishing, labelling and gripping.
