Lots of things coming in twos:

Following on from the London Cloth post, here is a beautiful two-parter on the work of SEH Kelly with the one man mill

On the rise and fall of Raleigh, the Nottingham bicycle company (The Bike Show - audio)

Another two-parter: good in-depth article on the boom in British breweries and how gin, wine and whisky are also faring well (Huffington Post)

Bookbinding: At the Wyvern Bindery in Clerkenwell, London and at Shepherds on Rochester Row (Port / Boat Magazine respectively)

and some other odd bits:

Chanel buys Scottish knitwear manufacturer (NYT)

A feature on Marwood, the London based tie company (Style Salvage)

Dove Street Pottery in Yorkshire (OEN)

Not UK based, but interesting to note: Dayjob, a new magazine focusses on the joy of the everyday job (via Protein)
