My new restoration will be a 1958 Percy Blandford Venturer, called Pandora. I bought her in May 2012, from the original builders widow, from the same location, where she was built.

On the dashboard is a little brass plaque, with the inscription, Built By R. Sewter, Glenfern Engineering, 49 Tinsley Lane, Three Bridges, Sussex

Below are some pictures of her in my unit...
