I was in Whites a couple of years ago. I had a problem to solve with window actuators but didn't quite know how to do it, I needed things I wasn't sure existed anymore. Whites helped and I came away with a whole load of bits for very little money. Did for that job and some since.

Yes that's Whites hardware shop, a real old fashioned Ironmongers. Good prices too.
Fantastic old Ambulance shots.
