    Visited with BBA and non member thrifty

    Ash had been past here many times and wondered what was inside. It wasn't until we saw a picture on the web that we decided to have a look. Its not normally something i would have a look at , but it was only a couple of miles from my house so i had no excuse not to. As we entered the property we noticed that things had gone missing already. I guess thats always the way:( . Still there was plenty to see, mainly printing machinery and sowing machines. The owner was also big into CB radios by the look of all the Ariels in and out side the cottage. The sheds in the garden also have printing presses, two of then are huge. This must have been a lovely house back in the day but is falling into a poor state, shame really

    History

    Not much really, only that the last dates we could see on correspondence was 2007

    I think you average Radio ham would be upset at it being called CB.
    To get an Amateur radio licence requires study up to a city & guilds level to pass the exam.
    The full licence requires a the fairly fluent knowledge and use of morse code.:yawn
    Why any sane person would want to I have no idea! :confused

    Yea I know all about Amateur Radio, never fancied it really.
    Didn't realise he had Ham stuff in there - yes they don't like being referred to CB a bit.
    Some nice old equipment there though.
