Following regular requests for ‘four candles’, a hardware shop owner in Croxley Green has made a unique set of candles from fork handles, much to the delight of his customers.

Inspired by the famous Two Ronnies comedy sketch, Tony Walker, the owner of Croxley Hardware near Rickmansworth, dutifully crafted his interpretation of the four candles from four wooden fork handles to put on display in the shop.

The creation has been such a hit with his customers that some have even asked to have their photographs taken with them.

Mr Walker said: “It is such an iconic sketch, there is little wonder it is quoted so regularly. Now when someone asks for four candles (or fork handles) I can just point to the display.”

He added: “I had no idea it would be so well received, but I would like to think that Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett would have approved!”
