THOMAS BRIGG WHANGEE

£460

'And the flood was 40 days upon the earth; and the waters increased ...'

What the unfortunate Noahs of the Somerset Levels need besides a watertight vessel may be a decent umbrella. A Thomas Brigg Whangee is just the job. Both The Avengers' Steed and Chaplin's tramp had one. The handle comes from the root of a uniquely durable bamboo. But, at that price, you had better not leave it on the train.

RATING: TWO STARS
