Looks smart, out of interest what’s the building in the 7th pic down? Looks a little like a telephone exchange :?

Not sure Rob, but here is a larger picture. It is in Romford. The chimney suggests another use. It's converted to flats and offices now.

Thanks all for the comments. The cabin is, as suggested, a very nice place to be. I am so looking forward to starting my travels and will post updates on places visited. Mr Wilks, two Yeti's on the Forum. I expect you will be getting one of those 'My other car is a Porsche' window stickers from the sixties :D
