Revolving Boulton and Paul summerhouses don't come onto the market for sale very often, and even less frequently fully restored ones. Rachel Barron has been in touch with us to seek a buyer for what she calls her 'complete labour of love' which she describes as 'in the main entirely original and believed to be Boulton & Paul'. "We have restored it back to its former glory retaining a lot of the original structure," she says. "While it does not have a Boulton and Paul metal tag I believe it was made by them as it is identical in many ways to one of their designs." If you're interested in finding out more, please email Rachel directly -------------------------------------------------------------------- - Monday posts are sponsored by garden2office, the Swedish garden office specialists.
