Sounds like a nice business idea, it cost £200,000 to build, holds 1000 at £1000 each, makes £1million....£800,000 profit

I haven't yet read the website fully but the guy in charge is/was a steward at stonehenge
so they used all the correct materials and so forth

Well these things were built for the elite

Oh yeah it says on the faqs X)
£30 a bit steep but I guess they made a loss on the urns
