Brilliant few hours finding out what Fred had at his yard. Leon is really nice, very knowledgeable, loved how everything at the yard has a tale behind it, definitely recommend. We will return to see the boiler when it is fitted.

Family visit to the heritage centre. Dads birthday present. Great time had by all. Interesting stories from Leon and Alf. Loved the old sheds/workshops. Nice cuppa and biscuits. Recommended for any Fred fans or people interested in local history.
