    I've just bought this.....

    Unfortunately, I couldn't persuade the vendor to leave his machinery but hey ho, can't have everything. I had a list of properties/plots to view and this was my favourite - this was the second one I saw and put the offer in there and then £18,500 all in - bout the price of a decent tool kit!!!
