Other commitments meant we were unable to make the special (and sunny) Ben Pon Barndoor Bus Meet in Amersfoort later in the month, which broke the amazing record set four years ago and had 102 (yes you read that right) pre-55 buses on display together on the Saturday; three more turned up on Sunday, making an impressive 105 in total!

The solid hand carved oak worktop with integral draining board has an under-mounted copper sink and matching copper tall faucet that complement the cream finish to the cabinets.
