Antrobus coach is not lost, but alive

Dear Sir, — Your Chronicling the Past feature in last week’s Chronicle featured the Antrobus coach, and stated that it was “doubtless lost, a tragedy too for Congleton Museum”.
I am pleased to advise your readers that it is not lost but alive and kicking in the National Trust Carriage Museum at Arlington Court, Barnstaple, as the attached photo shows.
The spaniel in front of the coach is Bramble, who sadly died a couple of years ago.
When the coach was stored in a building at Stableyard, Eaton Hall, my wife and her brother used to play in it. — Yours faithfully,
Neville Slater.
