An Aga range cooker re-enamelled in the snowy peak district!

Massive thanks to Philip today for his dedication! We thought long and hard about his trip to Edale in the peak district today and in the end he travelled up last night and stayed in a fab coaching inn half a mile from the job.

It was clear when he got in the van this morning but by the time he had completed the cooker works (a hob & lids re-enamel) the snow had arrived. The easy route out of Edale was already blocked by this point so Philip popped his snow chains on (always prepared that man is!) and headed up into the hills for the 5 mile journey through the lanes to freedom.

1 hour later he made it! He is at this very minute following a snow plow into Stockport and is due home 6pm. Blake & Bull always get through!
