We make a visit to the antiques centre at least once a year. (Daughter teaches in Louth and lives in Tetney) The antiques are housed in four of the RAF building, each building has two floors and with maybe 20 rooms on each floor. The items range from "proper" antiques, longcase clocks, quality furniture etc to the tatty stuff, perished gas masks and old sewing machines etc.

Plenty of free parking and one of the buildings has mostly handcraft items - Several years ago there was a chap with a lathe producing some nice wooden bowls but he's no longer there. Also from there I have a well modelled wooden Hurricane on a stand made a chap called Tony Mills.
