Historic Monument Removed

This photo comes from Around&About, who writes, "Not sure how this sits with the local Heritage Association but unfortunately this local monument has been removed. I know the whole village will be as sad as me to see it go, but it was good that Rob Bolton had the decency to fuel it before it left."

With all the old vehicles gone, and following the tidying that has been going on, the front of the shop is now almost unrecognisable.

Many thanks to Around&About for picture and comment.


  1. Classic, cheered me up on a horrible day!

  2. Presumably Beaulieu Motor Museum has a display stand ready.

  3. I believe the manufacturer has taken it back to find out why has corroded the way it has.

  4. Did it roll or did they drag it?

  5. Glad to see the pump put to use, whatever came out of it clearly made the van GO!
    It's taken so long I was beginning to doubt I'd get to see the that view, only 9 months for phase 1.... Couldn't have been achieved without Rob making it happen. Thanks to Rob and all those who helped.
    Next stop - the new roof, that will only take a few weeks now. It will create a little unavoidable disruption, but at least we've found a way to stay open for all but two days.
    My thanks also to Susanne, Helen, Bill and all those who have helped to keep the Shop and Post Office open for everyone's benefit.
