Welcome @martcon555 do you have any closer pictures showing the chain side and rear drop outs ?
Depending upon how old it is there could be a frame number stamped on the bottom bracket shell


Found in the Yorkshire hills ...
A few more close-up's of the lugs would help here. Depending upon the age there may be a frame number either on inside of the bottom drop-out, under the bottom bracket or near the seat-post. This link may help:

Given what appears to be horizontal drop-outs (small photo!) it looks like a track bike / single speed from the 1960's-1980's - a Raleigh Richmond with drop bars maybe.

Hello and welcome to the forum @martcon555.
Looks like a single speed conversion from an old Raleigh frame and not a standard model.
Any numbers would nail the date of the frame but everything else is likely a later addition.


It's got under bb cable routing and what looks like a braze on behind the head tube. 8805? Needs better pics :smile:
