Our recent electrical upgrade involved digging a trench in our shop floor! This led to some interesting discoveries, including several layers of different flooring and a small haul of archaeological treasure.

We are clearing out our storage sheds and have unearthed some hidden gems like this Amanco stationary engine. From 1912 Amanco imported engines from America but after 1928 the Bradford Gas Engine Co manufactured for the firm in Britain.
