An unusual shop that stocks folding bikes

Nadolig LLawen a Flwyddyn Newydd DDa!
(Merry Xmas & Happy New Year!)

I came across this unusual location for a bike shop, it operates from a traditional narrowboat called 'Brass Farthing'

Graham stocks Bromptons, accessories & upgrades
Also mentions Stridas & Dahons

Website here :- Tillercycles
