There's been various reports from this place covering it pretty well, so nothing really new to add.

Went back again recently with JasperB as she was working last time around. We managed to get around to a few more bits, glad that we managed to get one of the two headstocks done.

Dweeb had mentioned this one to us, so we headed back down to Birmingham to check it out. It was a fun explore, lots to see and plenty of sticky oil seeping out of every nook and cranny.
