  11. Here's a boundary stone I bought about 10 years ago, from a demolition company, who had taken down a wall and some buildings at Colchester barracks, it measures 18" x 12" and weighs about 18kg, it had been set into the wall that they had taken down.. I've never been able to find any photos of the barracks to see where these stones might have been placed.
  12. Sorry to hear that, if you do find the new owner I'd be grateful, Regards Gary
  13. I know this is a long shot (old thread), but does anybody know where or who has this trailer now, I have some thing from this very trailer that the owner might like, Regards Gary
