How many do you want and what type are you after? is it the pre focus halogen, pre focus xenon or the old ES screw base with the large glass globe, hard to find now but I still have some.
Got a bunch of other new spares too including bezels and cable glands, charge rack sets (key pins and the spring contacts) caplamp internal contacts plus some other stuff.
PM if you, or anyone else, is interested. Smile

Yes it is and its closed down. The property has been sold to a private purchaser who intends to convert into 3 private dwellings. Dave, the previous owner is a good old friend but wanted to retire, he is cut up about it not continuing as an outdoor centre.
A lot of us are sad about it going.

I took all the Oldham stuff away else it would have had to go into a skip. Working lamps and chargers went to Corris, a good home.

Entirely coincidentally I was offered 17,000 Oldham bulbs today. Maybe a wee bit more than the OP requires Wink

At least Dave found a buyer in the end. His place was on the market for years.

Bleak up there...

Ummm, don't think so, unless I'm mistaken. But I know he did ski hire in the winter. I think it was better trade back in the day when the highgrounds had snow on the ground a lot longer than you get these days

It did at one time, not exactly a huge length if I remember rightly

Yad Moss a few miles away has a ski lift/tow, been there since the 70's
Only trouble with it was by the time there was decent quantiy of snow the road ended up getting closed.

I think so.

There was also a climbing wall of sorts on the side of the building I think which I slipped off and grazed my finger a bit. Hardcore etc.

After he stopped a lot of the organised activities the attic staff rooms became unused and he let me use them as I like to be on my own. It became a sort of home from home for me, I would go up there for over a week.

Payment for the room was in form of a sort of semi barter with me supplying and looking after his lamps which I had converted to "WorkStar" model LED. I also converted an Oldham electronic rack charger by fitting Li Ion dedicated PCBs, and his diving lamps to LED. Diving is his big interest. He has kept all of this stuff, and only thrown out the lead acid kit.

I have a very sad memory of the tables and benches in the dining room being all removed. It seems all such a crying shame.

Honestly don't remember a ski slope! Oh well.

I used to stay in his room that was called, hmmm, I can't remember. Top floor end one, it had a name like "long forgotten" It'll come back to me.

His room rates were always well too cheap. I used to pay him cash then stick more notes on top just to help him out.

He used to cook a superb lasagne-and-chips.
