When they were finally dug out last week after some forty plus years, they turned out to be six almost c...

Re: Allwin Window Box.

You're the second person to say that about the seller. Yes, he was a bit of a character! Didn't think I was going to get away as he wouldn't stop talking. He was just selling it for his boss so probably not too bothered about etiquette. I find Gumtree is a bit like that. First person to show up with...

Re: Advice with a Castle Front Needed

Come on lads where is your sense of adventure? @&@ A little bit of painting and polishing may prove to be quite therapeutic! Actually it's the mechanical tinkering that fills me with the most dread.

Re: Advice with a Castle Front Needed

Re: Advice with a Castle Front Needed
