Les Oakes's Place
Les Oakes's Place
This remarkable structure was built from salvaged materials by scrap dealer Les Oakes. It incorporates doors, windows, and name stones from demolished buildings, and was described as "agricultural" to avoid having to get planning permission. This and other buildings on the site house a vast collection of vintage memorabilia, including horse-drawn vehicles from around the country. Sadly Mr Oakes was killed in a road accident in 2000, but his sons maintain the tradition of the business as "architectural reclamation".
