I'm fairly sure they are still trading, not.good at getting back to emails though. Keith Appleton mentioned them in a very recent you tube video he did (about a month ago) so i can't see that they will have ceased trading.

Good luck getting them to answer, they can be very slow on either phone or email.

Somebody in MTM needs to get them as a shopping partner so I don't have to go looking for their website

Kevan, you know you've got to provide build progress notes now you've told us. laugh

Only problem with Blackgates is not being able to order online😟

Brings me back to my recent post about websites, fortunately most of our ME suppliers have excellent sites, Macc is good example and they are a one man and his wife as far as I am aware so don't understand in this day and age why others seem to have a problem.

I am 79 and have embraced the www. enthusiastically since day one, I remember the day in business where to find a product you had to dig out your Kelly's or similar, have a stab at a few names, phone around and wait patiently for several days for a catalogue to arrive.

Emailed them last week with a small order enquiry and received quite a quick reply from a lady called Heather who informed me that their computer system was down but should be back up by Tuesday i.e. tomorrow.
