From what's visible, it looks very much like the "Nash" shell pictured here:

Thanks Jim that is it for sure! What a shame the frame doesn't have the matching flat lugs...still that little bit special though imho. Thanks.

It's a 'Nash' shell as said above. I have a complete set of lugs, BB shell etc. along with loads of others in the stuff my late friend had. Can still be found on the Ceeway Marketing website.

I dug out the complete set of 'Nash' lugs that I had and took a piccie. They're a bit 'tarnished' but you can see the 'flats' on the lugs and seat cluster.

Quite a hefty BB shell I reckon.

Apart from Tel's frame I've not seen any built into a frame as far as I can recall.
