...which is nearly £10000, but I bought it from the liquidator of a high end bathroom fitting company for £600.
The Drummond waste is not ideal as there appears to be nothing to secure it to the underside and it is not top access.
It turns out the bath thickness at the waste is actually 145mm. The waste hole is 52mm diameter.
I'm wondering if I can fit a standard clicker bath waste like this:
and attach it to a straight connector such as:
and then cut the threaded section off another bath waste, screw it to the above and then put the nut on it.
Just depends if I can get the nut of a straight connector in the 52mm hole or not, I think they are actually 55mm :-(

Any small machine shop, or even someone with the sort of machining and fabricating gear I have, could make a custom waste and trap for that bath in a few hours, one that would fit, last for decades and really look the part.
I'd be really reluctant to just bodge something together with bit of plastic and a cheap click/clack waste, as you really don't want to have to pull this out in three or four years and fix the waste, do you?

If you had a £10k bath for £600 then get the wallet wide open and get a waste custom made, and made bombproof.
I think I'd have the trap remotely positioned so the water is free flowing from the bath with the trap located elsewhere.
Your only going to want to fit this once
