Really gutted for you Greg.
I’ve only ever once had dealings with classic bulkheads - and when I went to visit, the first address on their website took me to a residential tower block. Then I managed to find another address for the shops as you’ve suggested. Phoned and phoned to let them know I was on my way, with no answer and then finally found the place all locked up and empty.

This was 5/6 years ago now, but clearly things are no better.
Really sorry to hear you’ve had such trouble with it. Shame there are so many out there happy to disappear without a word and while keeping your belongings…

Exactly what happened with Ash Tree Land Rovers.  They left a lot of customers out of pocket.
Was there any sign of any bulkheads there? Maybe the landlord would let you have a look around inside. If not then try Robert Owen and ask if they could build a bulkhead modified for a Rover V8.

Update after todays trip to Classic Bulkheads

Unfortunately as expected their workshop/lockup was shut on my arrived this morning. So I hung around for a few hours just in case somebody does turn up.. which just wasted even more of my weekend.

There workshop/lockup is situated behind some shops and luckily enough one of the shop owners is the landlord of classic bulkheads premises.

The landlord was really helpful but within a few seconds, the conversation only confirms my worst fears. They have not seen or heard from them for the past 6 months! The landlord went on to tell me, that they have been trying to contact them as they have outstanding rent (12 month plus) and unpaid electric bills.

So it looks like I will be buying a brand new bulkhead!!  >:D >:D >:D
The worst bit is that I left my door hinges on my old bulkhead and it was also modified for Rover V8. Even more out of pocket!  >:D

DO NOT USE CLASSIC BULKHEADS!!!

The campsite is West-Moss side campsite, DG12 5PU, leave Annan on the B721, then turn left onto the B724, heading for Powfoot and Cummertrees, once you get to Cummertrees, pass under the railway bridge, then you will see a telephone box outside the village hall, opposite this there is a turn off on your left, it looks like you are heading into a farmyard, but carry on, you will pass Moss side campsite, ignore this, the next one is West-Moss side campsite.

Moved the land rover to get the camper into the shade at the side of the house to work on a rooflight.  It is so warm that it started without using the heater plugs

Technically you WILL need it taxed, albeit at zero cost.

This month’s Thames Valley pub meet is going to be at the Victoria Arms, Mill Lane, Old Marston, Oxford. OX3 0QA

It’s a lovely riverside pub with a reasonably sized car park. They serve some really good food as well.

It’s been a long time since we had a big gathering in Oxford and it would be great to see as many of you as we can.

The Landlord is a big fan of Land Rovers, he has offered to buy mine more than once and he will be ecstatic if we get a good gathering. That doesn’t mean to say you have to bring your pride and joy if you don’t want to, it’ll be good to get a few of us together however we get there.

Sorting through some old photos, came across this, wondered if anyone recognised it. It is from 2016. Taken at Kingston, South Island, New Zealand.  Just before the earthquake. It is really nice.
