Next on the list was to strip and inspect the axle. The brakes are Girling mechanical and the linings, apart from having a bit of grease contamination, are fine; I think the apprentices who used to look after it had got carried away!  The wheels were of the spring ring design, luckily I had the correct pry bar for releasing the ring. The tyres were well past their best having exploded quite dramatically when we tried to move the trailer. I managed to locate some reasonable 600 x 20 tyres and bought 2 new inner tubes.
