With over 20 years of age on the briar, Astley pipes showcase English craftsmanship from the finest names on the island. Astley was a tobacconist in England who opened a shop in 1862. The shop contracted with the best pipe makers, including: Charatan, James Upshall, Dunhill, Les Wood, and Bill Taylor of Ashton Pipes for their private label pipes. The shop closed in 1998 after Paul Bentley moved the shop from its original location at 109 Jermyn Street to Piccadilly Arcade. Now, you can add an unsmoked piece of English pipe smoking history to your collection.
