Splimple -serious about humour

Who writes our Splimples?
The man behind the words on most Splimple products is Stuart Caldwell. 

He can be contacted at Does he work as a freelance writer too?  Yes.

Who designed this website?

Alison’s Animals are the creation of Alison Lingley.  She spent her formative years in stables where she loaded wheelbarrows with smelly stuff, fell off ponies and made friends with dogs.  In her spare time she drew the animals she worked with – until the drawing took over full time and she became a professional artist with commissions and work worldwide

The World of James Herriot museum in Thirsk is guaranteed to give a severe outbreak of goosebumps to anyone who remembers the classic BBC TV series, or who has read the books. The museum and set are located in Alf White’s (aka James Herriot’s) actual surgery:
