Thank you for clicking on `contact us` - we hope that the shop and site have both been enjoyable and easy to navigate and to read. The website has always been a bit of a labour of love for us, trying to convey what Salix means: our passion for the bats and real commitment to staying authentic and transparent in a cyberworld of smoke and mirrors.
If any of our site looks familiar, it is because we started writing it in the 1990s and it has often been reproduced... we have always sought to convey real, committed, professional batmaking, what it means, and why it still matters. Our aim is to reflect what we do and to give you a virtual visit, in the hope that you make a real one soon.
Hopefully most queries are covered throughout the site, but we welcome phone calls or emails for any further advice, information or to book an appointment to visit.
More details about our bespoke bat fittings can be found on our main site under visits/salix@source, and we also recommend checking Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for updates, or simply calling us at the workshop.
We always respond to all email queries, but as a manufacturing company we are hands on so please bear with us, especially as we receive many hundreds of emails every week. For any queries on bat care, maintenance or returns, do please see our bat care section.
How to find us
Please see the Google Map below, and also this PDF Salix Directions (pdf) giving the most straightforward routes to the farm. Although classed as Maidstone, we are actually some distance from the town but just 5 minutes from Junction 8 of the M20, so it is normally easier to bypass Maidstone completely.
Please also note that Google`s current street view images are before our lovely renovation so hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised!
We look forward to welcoming you at the home of cricket bat making.
Kent, ME17 3JY
Mon - Fri 9:00AM - 5:30PM
