A bicycle enthusiast has found the “holy grail” of collector's items after discovering what he believes to be Britain’s oldest bike dating back to 1819.

Glynn Stockdale from Knutsford said he couldn’t believe his luck when he received a call about a long-forgotten bike in a disused barn.

The 79-year-old immediately recognised the bicycle as a hobby horse and has now displayed the cycling relic in his penny farthing museum in Cheshire.

It looks like the frame is made of wood. If it is, it is probably yew.
