Looks a bit like a Falcon. What's the seat post size? Any brazed on cable guides?

No guides on top tube at all.
2 on down tube in front of the crank.
Think the post is 26.8mm

26.8 mm seat post.
1 inch dia top tube measured with digital calipers.
The 2 cable guides on the down tube look uncommon. ?

Based on the seatstay cap design, I would venture that it is a Dawes Galaxy. See here:

Hi you're right.it's a dawes.it is stamped into the rear dropout. It doesn't seem to be a galaxy or any other popular model.No bottle mounts or braze on guides except 2 underneath before the crank.

It may be a Mark 1 Galaxy the cable stops are a dead giveaway plus the first models had no bottle mounts or other brazeons. If it is then your lucky, thats full Reynolds 531 on every bit of the bike not a mix as in later ones. Not good for heavy touring though, fore to aft flex is too much, I know from the terror of a speed shimmy coming down the Hartside pass in the Pennines after hitting a pothole :shock:
