Our 2016 Transport rally this year was a roaring success. We had over 500 vehicles displayed at this year's rally, everything from penny farthings, to VW campervans, even a replica of the famous reliant made famous in 'Only Fools and Horses'.

Vintage and classic enthusiasts descended on the Ironworks in their hundreds and it was fantastic to see thier pride and joy on show.Read More

Oswestry Town Council have awarded our chairman, Clive, the Civic Award for supporting the town of Oswestry
and promoting local tourism. Cllr Peter Cherrington presented the award to Clive's son Ben Knowles at the
annual civic dinner held at Wynnstay Hotel and SPA recently. The town and tourism in the area has always been one of
Clive's biggest passions. Over the years he has done so much and this award is a tremendous honour to receive.
We have a total of 32 knife banks to create for London Metropolitan Police. This week we delivered the first 10 while collecting another 2 crates of weapons from the force.
These knife banks as you can see are desperately needed and it's evidence again of how much needs to be done not just in London but throughout the nation.
Thank you London Met for your continued and valued support.
How an idea starts ….
We are always trying new ideas and looking to do something imaginative.
Take a look at this initial sketch, illustrating a horse, possibly a Pegasus, built on top of a Honda CX500.
This project will leave the bike still drivable and will pretty much completely disguise the bike.
The sculptor that will champion this, will hopefully be Luke Kite, one of Shropshire finest who already exhibits with us.
We are hoping to have this ready for the summer.
