Andy, that corner became famous in the 26 years I had my shop. All visitors posed on the doorstep for group photos. Also in the picture are my Sherpa 400 in which I went to IMM's in Sweden, Germany, Holland as well as loads of UK mini shows. And peeking round the corner is the Rover 2000 belonging to Warren, my brilliant restorer who built SWR from the ground up as well as loads more Minis, a frogeye, some 1100's and a 3L Marcos.

Thankfully they didn't flatten the whole lot but retained the curved exterior when renovating it. A highly desirable house now.

I lived just up the road in 2017/8 on Ruskin Square.

Probably May or June. The Yorkshire winters are harsh. But not as harsh as BMW who forced me to remove the word 'Mini' from the shop front.

Ha ha, we are there the week after! Not staying in the village this time, but in Porthmadog. We are there from the 20th for a fortnight. I'm not taking MY moke either. :lol:

Be seeing you.
