The rear hub should be dated. Typical English lightweight. I'm sure others will chime in with more info. V/r Shawn

TI owned Phillips before it bought Raleigh.
Ti bought Raleigh in 1960.
The fact it says Nottingham rather than Birmingham, it was made by Raleigh after 1960, and could even be after 1970.

Like @bulldog1935 says, your Phillips was built by Raleigh. The 10 speeds are harder to date than the 3 speeds, but Kurt Kaminer's "The Headbadge" website has a page showing where Raleigh put the serial numbers in various years, which may at least narrow it down.

It also may help to look for variations of the rear derailleur (looks like a Huret Alvit) on VeloBase.com. I couldn't post a link, but a search will bring it up.

Pedals appear to be Phillips Apollo pattern. The black plastic dustcaps mark them as relatively late production. Evidently TI/RI got the rights to the Apollo when they bought the badge/company...

WRT employing the Freres Huret Allvit rear mech for dating purposes (model nr. 1900) -

you can make a visit to VB where the different iterations are shown in some detail to help you date the example on the bicycle.

the pulleys are one dating aid. the early Allvit iterations have all-metal pulleys. later on plastic "tyres" were added to them. these were done in both black and in red. the tyre colour is one additional dating aid.

the front mech is an Allvit model 600. beginning in 1966 Huret launched the model Luxe 700 front mech which somewhat resembles the Allvit but has two adjustment screws for travel instead of the one screw of the Allvit.

there are a number of individual year Huret catalogues available at velo-pages.com. they have very good parts drawings for specific product models which can assist you to determine a model year (or narrow period) for the cycle's rear mech.
