Tom Bowden and for my sins I am the founder and head buyer of Working Class Heroes.
Working Class Heroes, Ulverston
We shine a spotlight on some of our most exciting independent stockists around the world. This time we speak with Tom Bowden, the founder and head buyer of Working Class Heroes, just outside of England’s Lake District.
Sunny Ulverston just outside The Lake District.
I was selling yogurts and pies for a well know supermarket and it sucked my will to live. Born out of a desire to do something that was nearly the exact opposite of what I was doing, I founded WCH. It's worked. I believe the supermarket is in administration, so I'm sticking to the plan!

It's not really in a place where you'd except to find a shop like this. You expect it in a city centre, "strategic" site. But we love the fact it's in a quiet market town. Nice and chilled.

Not a chance, we might get caught.
Beerwolf, amazing bar! You'll walk in on your feet and leave on your back. Plus Ripe Eat. It’s the best takeaway munchies in Ulverston.
