I can’t remember what school it came from but I believe it was originally made by apprentices back in the 80’s maybe?

Out of all of my time, the second year of our apprenticeship was the most enjoyable.

Lloyd Thomas … Originally built on the First year apprentice section at Ashchurch in ‘78/79. Chris Greville was one of the lads who was involved. All the tube intersections were drawn on paper and then wrapped around the tube and then filed to match.

I think Ken Amphlett welded it together.
