This long abandoned three storey ex-farmhouse sits way out in the sticks in a remote, leafy corner of Rugeley in Staffordshire. Possibly under ownership of the nearby still working farm, it has thankfully been cleared of personal possessions which means it doesn’t feel uncomfortable standing there surrounded by someone’s lifetime’s worth of stuff. Just some nice dated furniture and a few nik-naks remain.

Pix taken over a few visits, both phone and DSRL

The Elastrator was "Made in England", but the box has a New Zealand address. It reminded me of a farm hand who castrated piglets with a razor blade!

The boxes always came with the country of manufacture printed on the side and the full address of the Company who was selling product to the Public on the front. Customs and taxation I suppose.

Easy to contact the firm as well. It still exists in New Zealand
