Greg visits the Clarke Tinwhistle company

Greg enjoyed visiting one of the oldest manufacturing companies in Kent which has been producing tinwhistles since 1843 – around the time Charles Dickens wrote 'A Christmas Carol'.

The company, which is based in Five Oak Green, exports about 80% of its products to countries outside the European Union, particularly to America & China.

Robert Clarke invented the tinwhistle nearly 175 years ago to inspire people of all ages to enjoy music by providing a high quality but inexpensive instrument for them to play.
