Interesting to see the Hawtins Rolling Road. The old catalogue image shows the track layout is different to a standard Steer-A-Ball (a version of which Hawtins also made). Your close-up reveals the relief molding of the "mountainous course".

What was the pub for the auction in Leicester
2001 - Handcrank Auction Leicester
Pete
The Leicestershire Pub was The Fox Inn at Thringstone.
It's now a small row of houses in a cul-de-sac.

The last pub where we hosted events was The Nelson Inn Cresswell Green Burntwood, still there so far as I know. !!CHEERS!!

Thanks Jeremy for the info, it makes you wonder where a lot of the machines have gone, and the people.
Roll on Coventry always nice to see a few old and new collectors.
I wanted this Jennings so much it went for £1000+ some things never change and that was 2001.
