LEATHER craftsman Mark Routledge, whose work can be seen in the hit TV show Peaky Blinders, has just opened a shop in Devizes.

Mr Routledge, 52, who lives in Potterne had been trading for the past year from a unit in The Shambles market but has now opened Gallybagger in Sidmouth Street.

Most of what he sells he makes himself and items range from the everyday items such as wallets and key rings to the less well known bell muffles and and ferret harness.

He said: "I genuinely enjoy my work and repairing old but well loved things always gives me great pleasure. Commissions where I work closely with a client to make something unique and personal is also up there with my favourite jobs to do.

"I have and will make bags and bracelets, knife sheaths, pouches, belts and dog collars. I have repaired antique cases and modern handbags.

"I have made bell muffles and ferret harness alongside brightly coloured children's bracelets and covered journals. I have also made the belts for the policemen in peaky blinders and several commissions for history programmes."

His shop name comes is a nod to his rural Wiltshire heritage. He said: "For those that do not know Gallybagger is an old Wiltshire word for scarecrow."
