After months of being open and seeing huge success, Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop has now closed for two months as the team make alterations to the building to please the local council.
Fans of the Amazon Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm were sad to see that the shop was closing down temporarily. This caused a slew of fans to visit the shop just before New Year, crowding the roads and leading locals to complain yet again about the increase in traffic and on-road parking.
The reasoning behind the closure stemmed from the roof material used on the building. According to reports, the local council informed The Grand Tour presenter that the materials he used to build the roof were not permitted and would have to be replaced.
The council allowed the farm shop to be built on the condition that any materials utilized in its construction were approved by the council. Unfortunately, despite being made aware of it, the builder used a large green metal sheet for the roof, which was not authorised by the council. The shop will therefore be closed for two months so the roof can be replaced with slate.
Fortunately, the official website behind the Diddly Squat Farm Shop is now advertising the opening times for when it reopens in March.
Our shop is now closed for January and February. Open in March from 9.30am – 4.30pm Wednesday – Sunday.
Until then, the shop sells the majority of its products online such as its candles, t-shirts, and other merchandise, and farm produce such as honey (bee juice) and jams.
