Hi Gang
I have just uploaded this and its one not to miss, so attention Carnkie, RM, TM etc. Its possibly the only one in existence.
I originally purchased it from an old chap I knew only as "Bill", now deceased. He lived in Truthwall at the end of the lane near the campsite. I also had most of the Levant agents reports from him, already uploaded.
I had a load of plans to get digitalised and found a local firm with a large scanner who did them for £2.50 a time. Amongst them are the plans for Talybont, but I am not uploading these until after my book is published!

Thanks Roy. Will need some time to look at properly. £2.50 a throw; that's pretty cheap by todays standards. Cheers.

Had a closer look (not completely of course) and the quality and detail are really excellent. Thumbs Up IP: 88.105.158.150
