Anyone here with a large enough garden?

Dad's involved with Avro Heritage at Woodford, so I mentioned it to them. I dread to think how much moving it would cost .... Confused

The Shack appears to have found appreciative new owners:

We poor mortals enjoy repair, restoration and or renovation of relatively small road-going vehicles. It is heartening to find that groups are prepared to put time, effort and good money into such worthwhile projects, of daunting size and complexity, that probably most of us could only dream about as individuals.

Thanks for the information, Rick.
