It was the other color of Chepstow.

They're quite a bit darker IRL as compared to those Barney's pics.
More like the shade of these

I bought some C&J Drummond's in 7.5E (usually an 8 UK) as they were the last size left and 40% off.

The length is fine but are tight around the widest part of my foot, right before the toes.

I've worn them a couple of times for short periods to try and break them in and whilst they're better, they're still tight.

Is it likely that the last is wrong for me or they just need a few more wears to stretch?

I'm a UK 8E in most of my C&Js too, but have Drummonds in UK 8.5E. They are a little long and I probably should have gone with UK 8E, but I feel like they might be too narrow in that size too.

Interesting they are a 8.5, but the seller stated they fit like a US 10 D !?

I'm guessing...he has no idea. his other feedback on ebay indicates he doesn't sell shoes normally

Yes 240 is BB-exclusive.  It's a last that BB acquired when they purchased Peal & Co.'s name & assets.

They fit like a US9.5D. I have that exact pair.

Just FYI: I too had only seen it used at BB until I came across this 240-lasted model at Ben Silver.

It's a pretty snug last.

I prefer the 325 to the 240.
