In 2012 the Cumberland Pencil Company, the first and now the last pencil manufacturer in Britain, is celebrating 180 years of great British pencil making.  Founded in 1832 in the Lake District, the home of the first pencil, it is still going strong. Our passion and commitment to excellence is demonstrated to perfection in the Derwent brand of fine art drawing media.  Although justifiably proud of its heritage, Derwent also has a reputation for innovation. From the classic ranges of Artists, Graphic and Watercolour to exciting introductions such as  Inktense, Artbar and  Graphitint, Derwent has been inspiring artists worldwide for many years and continues to do so.
