Surprise Birthday Visit

We had a lovely visit from former David Brown Industries employee Chris Blake and his daughter.  Mr Blake worked for over 30 years for David Brown Industries developing gear boxes for large industrial machines.  He even recognised a photograph taken of a DB6 in the centre of a gigantic gear.  All the employees were asked to leave the floor while the car was lowered in place in preparation for the publicity photo.  Mr. Blake's daughter arranged the visit to the Barn as a surprise for his 86th birthday.  We look forward to their next visit!
