A man is trying to track down the makers of his more than 100 year-old Romany traveller wagon.

Julian Wolfe is looking to re-home the wagon, which he believes was built by Wisbech company Abbott & Sons between 1908 and 1912.

He said: “As I am now looking to re-home this wagon, it would be nice to find a resting place in it’s area of origin.

“I thought it may be of particular interest to someone in the area who may remember this company or even whether they are still trading under another name.”

To get in touch with Julian, call 01403 741027 or e-mail
