Appreciate the positive comments. You are all right about the view, it is stunning. Will miss it if/when we move (need more room).
DL - where about in Scotland?
Cheapskate - that was my worry too so trying to source a couple of fan controllers with removable knobs and reasonably long shafts.
KidMod - most of the valves were shot and the pcb was damaged so gave the lot to a friend who builds custom valve amps to see if he could salvage anything. Since doing that I have been a regular visitor to vintage radio sites trying to locate the cosmetic parts I needed. Has made me feel guilty enough that I plan on doing a full radio restoration as my next project to appease the valve gods!
