At last, a decent Spade!!

Yesterday I got dragged to The Umbrella Festival in Northampton (I suspect I was child-minder number two). Luckily I found a wonderful stand selling refurbished tools, and acquired an absolutely superb digging spade.

If I have deciphered the embossed (?) marks correctly it's a Spear & Jacskon with a Kitemark from way back when they were made in Sheffield and made to last for ever. Unlike the modern poor quality made-in-China rubbish available in the shops.

Just 12.
