I visited this shop via a last-minute scan through the ukmodelshops site for retailers near Sheffield. My first visit will not be my last as this shop carried a large stock from what looked like a modest frontage in the village square. Parking is immediately adjacent to the shop once you navigate the one way system. Prices were fair. Stock included some discontinued and pre-owned items. Lots in the smaller H0/00 railway-compatible scales of 1:87 to 1:72 as well which is quite unusual. I left with a bag full of 20 (!) models without breaking the bank. Worth travelling for.
