Kirpan the Colne was designed I believe as a Roach rod
The one I have seen was 13ft could have been 13-6 but also had a short butt that could shorten it to 11ft if you wanted to

There are pictures of the 14ft. version which Wallys-Cast brought back to life in this thread :-

It's mainly used for fishing I believe :tea:

Perhaps for fishing the River Colne near Heathrow for roach with hemp?
