I'll be taking a leisurely ride in an otherwise empty (small) car from near Exeter to Bedfordshire next Monday. Seems a bit of a waste - has anyone got anything that needs a lift ? I shall almost certainly be calling at the toolshop at Colyton and perhaps the one at Stroud, or Pennyfarthing in Salisbury (but not both). Route is negotiable.
Nothing to move for me thanks but you have intrigued me with your mention of a toolshop in Stroud. I visit my father who lives just 8 miles away each week and haven't found it yet, most annoying. Can you give me a clue where it is? I won't be going until the end of next week so won't steel any bargains from you!! - this time.
Thanks, I must have been having a "senior" moment as I didn't connect Toolco with the others you mentioned. I have in fact tried to visit a couple of times but have never caught them open. I hadn't phoned before though just stopped on the off chance.
I visit the Colyton one at least once a year and like you rarely get away with the same amount of money that I arrived with! I normally combine it with a visit to Axminster Tools and then on to Lyme Regis to keep the wife happy, makes a good day out. I've been to Pennyfarthings a couple of times but have yet to crack the best place to park. They seem to have a lot of "stuff" to pick through but I find the pricing a bit variable, some very reasonable some, well they must have lots of people looking for it. Both excellent places to visit and in nice parts of the country too with plenty of places nearby to keep the wife busy.
Hope you enjoy your day and find plenty to interest you where ever you end up.
