Restoration of a Victorian lawn mower

I found a Victorian lawn mower under an old sheet on a high shelf in an old Victorian shed I had taken down (since it was falling down) and would like to have the mower restored. A person form the lawn mower museum has offered to do this in Merseyside but the mower is in Dorset and since it is made from cast iron and wood it is very heavy so I cannot post it. Does anyone know who may restore it in the Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex or London area?
Hi Wrightt, I live up the road from the Lawnmower Museum in Southport, Merseyside and they certainly know their stuff. As well as a museum they are repairers/retailers of everything mower related. Ive bought my two mowers from them and use them for repairs and garden bits and pieces, they are one of those real old fashioned hardware type shops, everyone wears a shirt and tie and they have green suit type jackets. They would do a good job but as you say, it's a bit far from Dorset. Hope you find somewhere local.
