What a sad day, probably the end as we know it.


Having run my changes page for several years now its been obvious that the
number of TES jobs has dwindled, to the point of being less than some of the
small hanging concern.

In retrospect the surprising thing is how long they have kept going, it must
have been very difficult and stressful for all concerned and for a long

What is left? lightly not enough for a foundry and large premises, more
likely  a small unit keeping the name and contracting out foundry work,
hopefully able to retain a much reduced tuning facility, but even that may
be difficult to justify.


What is there of value, as a business?

There must be a nice little maintenance business, with some regular
scheduled work, located on an unsuitable site.

Is there anything else that could be considered a going and potentially
profitable concern?


They are a bit like the C of E in some ways, an ever decreasing business to
be kept going in the face of maintaining an English heritage in unsuitable
buildings more national museum than place of work.


Could the C of E go the same way?
