Staithes - 1000 Pieces
Staithes - 1000 Pieces
Any visitor to the town of Staithes is going to be astounded by how much history such a small place can have. Staithes is famous for its past fishing industry and hundreds of years of mineral production, an industry that continues to this present day. Staithes is nestled between the sea and the North York moors.
At the foot of the village is a beautiful small harbour, sheltered by high cliffs, piers and rock armour. A small fleet of brightly painted cobles can usually be found here. These are the traditional fishing vessels of this coast and are used by local fishermen to catch crabs, lobsters and cod.
Staithes has been home to many heroes including Captain James Cook and many brave souls whose names are recorded in stone on the War Memorial. It is also home to those who today, at the sound of the maroon, take the Staithes Lifeboat to sea as their ancestors have done for the last 100 years.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and commission the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together, in fact, they use the thickest puzzle board on the market.
Gibson's have made some positive changes to their processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but they have used recyclable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing plastic waste. They use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than previous designs, less room is needed to transport the puzzles, which reduces the carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. There is also an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
With over 250 Gibsons jigsaws available here, at The Yorkshire Jigsaw Store, there is plenty to choose from. From the large piece puzzles to the most popular 1000 piece puzzles there is a jigsaw for everyone. The gift box range of 500 piece puzzles offers the perfect present.
Gibsons have created ‘The Piecing Together’ puzzle collection. This range of puzzles has been specifically created for those living with dementia, limited fine motor skills or visual impairment allowing them to enjoy the wonderful pastime either alone or with loved ones.
