I'm frankly amazed at the research talent on this forum! When I saw the original request I confess I quietly said 'fat chance' to myself. Wrong, Nobby.


Not only has the lock maker been tracked down but we have a drawing of their factory from an advert SO similar to an Allcock's one...and they were the forerunner of Yale locks too!

140 years on..........wow!

What a lovely looking thing that is Steve. A fantastic find and what a joy it would be to use on a lovely summers day along with a greenheart rod and wooden centrepin.

Looking forward to seeing it in use..

Quick wash and a splash of linseed oil and she's ready for another 100 years or more!

Cheers Wal, it will be at Redditch if you fancy a gander?

John, it will be sitting beside me on the bankside by month's end :Thumb:
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.
