    It certainly looks like a Whitworth.

    I think I have one on the bench - I will see if I can measure it.

    With that much plaster off I would plaster board the walls - dot and dab or battens/bonded metal firrings - then its a much quicker skim job.

    Not sure what the 3 pieces of broken ? stone are for ? cant be a lintol as not built in and the bricks are already arched a bit - maybe also a steel/iron strip supporting the arch ?

    Exposed bricks ! - gets very dirty/dusty even when sealed - be...

    Cedric. I noticed in an earlier post you mentioned injection holes presumably for an injected damp proof course. This would indicate that a previous owner has succumbed to the myth of "rising damp". There is some interesting reading here

    The lack of...

    I see few people have aswered your query V. Unfortunately I will have to answer by stating that the "best" tyre for you car is inevitably only the opinion of the answerer so all I can really add is that in my opinion radials give a better ride than crossplies.
