I first Adam Brooks, the then new owner Springbank Koi, and business manager Clayton Morris in Japan in February 2017 when introduced by Mat McCann of Beni Hanna Nishikigoi – https://www.benihannanishikigoi.com. Mat had in fact worked for the original incarnation of Springbank Koi many years ago.
Around 18 months ago I made my first visit to what was essentially the original premises which Adam and Clayton had given a little refurbishment and business was ongoing with further development plans at the site. You can read about that visit here – http://nishikigoi.life/2017/03/26/visit-springbank-koi/.
I subsequently met Adam and Clayton again at the 2018 All Japan Show last February when they advised me this had taken a rather dramatic change. Rather than use the original rented Springbank facility they had decided to relocate to a site located in the city of Salford, Greater Manchester.
On 7th September I visited Clayton at the new site, where he was busy with the ongoing construction, to take a look around. See more in the video below.
