SHANKS 1862 PATENT REPATRIATED

A great Rally at Milton Keynes this year; happily lots of members who were unable to attend last Autumn, due to the various National problems' were able to attend.

The Brightest Star was certainly the well deserved winner of the AG Plate 2022;  Keith our President with his amazing, rare and beautifully ornate Shanks 1862 Newly Improved Patent, two handed Machine.  (I didn't measure the cutting width)

We have all seen this machine illustrated in the Seminal Work; The Shire Book on Lawnmowers, and we are all  now blessed that a rare survivor has been found!
