With a heritage beginning in the year 1720, a business know as Woodcock's Consulting Opticians was started which manufactured 'spectacles and eyeglasses of a very high standard'. The Eye Place in Bakewell is a direct descendant of that original business. Woodcock's became known as John Pepper Opticians- run by the great, great, great grandson of the founders. Now trading from the former site of the Royal Oak, Alex Kemp bought this business in 2006 with the purpose of continuing that tradition of supplying 'spectacles and eyeglasses of a very high standard'.
Carefully crafted over the last 10 years, Alex has created a custom level of eye examination which is now The Eye Place standard. Taking place in The Eye Place's Eye Lab, experience either the Advanced or opt for the Comprehensive Eye Examination. The Comprehensive Exam harnesses the full power of specialist eye health technology, analysed by our highly experienced and knowledgeable Optometrists, making it one of the the most comprehensive eye examinations in the world.Read More
