Music lover converts old post office into a rock and roll emporium

A music lover who had no space for his massive music collection has converted an old post office into a rock and roll emporium - and is selling off his memorabilia. 

On display at Bernard Britain's musical shrine are more than 500 vinyl records, amplifiers, tour posters and classic guitars including Fenders and Telecasters. 

Bernard, 71, began collecting records in his youth and continued his obsession well into adulthood. 

And it was boosted during his days as an agent to the stars, when he organised gigs and tours for some of the biggest names in rock during a 20 year career in the music industry. 

Now, after downsizing to a one-bedroom flat in Mytholmroyd, West Yorks., he has converted the old post office below it into a musical shrine and shop. 

He said: "I had a three bedroom house, now I've got a one bedroom flat above the shop so I haven't got room for it all. 

"I always loved the music and always loved guitars, amplifiers and records. 

"I suppose I had a particular time when I couldn't help but collect stuff, I seemed to be a bit of a hoarder when it came to music. 

"I don't have room upstairs with all the stuff. I cleaned them all and have priced them accordingly. 

"It's unfortunate I'm in the position that I have to sell stuff. It's more of practicality than money.  

"I'm at the point at my age where I don't need as much stuff. 

"In the shop, there is everything to do with 50s music, from Sun records to all the artists that lovers of that era are into."
