Who made this frame?

This Argos Bike was rescued from being thrown into the skip and being lost.  But is it an Argos?  I sent the pictures who confirmed that it was not one of theirs but the did refurbish it in the 1980s.  The wrap around seat stay is the biggest clue and at least two frame builders provided this design: Holdsworth and Brian Rourke.    Here are some detailed pictures of the bike documenting in the state we received it in:  Any ideas?

Beautiful original state

Nice detail - wrap around seat stays

The forks provide a good clearance

Cinelli bars and stem

Campagnolo Pedals
