    There's a William Lindop sports equipment shop in Manchester so I suspect that the logo on your rod might well be theirs and that the rod was made for them by one of the big makers. I've come across Wm Lindop match rods before.

    Unless its a known make (and desirable) a rod like this might get you £20 on Ebay and that's assuming it is repairable.
