This machine was our first large restoration project during we uncovered with the help of a great many people and some determined detective work the entire early history of the machine.
Built in 1934 by Orton & Spooner this machine had various owners including the famous north east showman William Noble. After a spell in an Amusement Park in the Isle of Sheppey it was purchased by the Smith family of Leighton Buzzard. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Late Albert Smith a gentlemen without whom I doubt we could have restored the machine. His advice and information was invaluable.
We embarked on a total restoration of this machine including remaking the large scenic front section of the machine which had been sold off many years earlier.
