I've found this for sale,all it says in the advert is built by mike dixon/leader. The frames fillet braced Columbus OR tubing with a 1" steerer set of project two's and it used to be white. Has anyone got any suggestions!!

No idea but obviously high quality. Cable routing on downtube should be a give away.

I'd buy it!

It's like a mixture of different makes,the way the seat stays mate upto the seat tube i've seen the same on a overburys pioneer. For the age it seems it could be 80's very early 90's with it having a 1" head tube. My bids in anyways :D

Well I don't know any more about it's history, but I can say that's the most effort I've ever needed to extract a BB. Interesting cable routing for the front mech, uses a short piece of outer to do the over BB run. Only one set of bottle cage bosses too. Time will tell whether the rust can be overcome...
