A micro gallery with a focus on upcycled art

closed thro January while we redecorate, sorry for any inconvenience

England's smallest gallery?



We might be small, but we've had some pretty big names talk us up! We've had mentions in The Guardian, in Reloved Magazine (the magazine which is all about upcyling), we regularly get mentions on BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music and our super sleek branding has been featured by the lovely guys at Awesome Merchandise.

Yes we're small, but we're perfectly formed The Hard to Find Gallery features the work of TreeHuggery and carefully selected friends, with an emphasis on upcycled art.

In addition, my TreeHuggery workshop ( a working studio) is usually open, for you to take a look around too.

So where are we?

We're 5 mins from J27 of M1 in the middle of DH Lawrence Country, with the Broxtowe Country Trail, and lots of country pubs on the doorstep. 

And we're not that hard to find, not really.

Want directions?

Come off the M1 at junction 27.  Take the A608 to Heanor and Eastwood.  Turn left at the T junction.  Take the 2nd right, which is still the A608, and is still signposted to Heanor and Eastwood (Brinsley is on there as an afterthought) You'll see the signpost to say that you've entered Brinsley.  Immediately AFTER the pedestrian crossing, turn right on to Moor Road (the Brinsley fish bar is on the corner).  We're part way up the street on the right hand side, just before the bungalow.

Look out for the chalk board, go through the gate and follow the signs.

Opening Times


Open daily 11am - 3pm. 

​Also please note we're always CLOSED the last (full)*weekend of every month. *so when the weekend falls 31s/1st I will be closed the weekend before.

(We're aware our opening hours aren't convenient for everyone, if you want to visit but really cant get witithin those hours, contact us, we're pretty accomodating, and we'll try and open at some mutually convenient time.)
