    I am a visual artist, I have depicted plant in my work from time to time, recently finishing a work featuring a Grain Hopper.
    I have been approached to research another image of an Alvan Blanch DF115 Grain Drier, although I have three photos of the Grain Drier being dismantled, and transported, I am enquiring if anyone might know of the whereabouts of a DF115 in situ where I might see it and photograph or make sketches.
    Also , if you know of any locations with DF115 Grain Driers or have images of them I would be much obliged for any info to help me get a better sense of the structure and scale.
    Many thanks

    I have one but am unsure if it is a DF115, mine is longer than the one pictured but I can have a look at the serial plate

    Depends where you are. I know of one of those or similar dryers near me in Suffolk, I am certain I can persuade owner to let you have a look.
    There are a few round the country

    Thanks Exfarmer, distance is not a big problem but my schedule is a bit seized up so it could be two or three weeks before I could get there, please don't let this put you off, I am very appreciative and look forward to any further information to help my research, thanks JP
