Sorry for the very late notice of this event.

 

We shall be at Crofton Beam Engine this Sunday 30th   Situated near Burbage / Great Bedwyn ; Wiltshire.

 

The engine will be in steam, boats & classic cars also in attendance.

 

A rare chance to see this mighty engine doing what it's always done -- pumping water to feed the top of the Kennet & Avon Canal.

 

 Come in your kit if fine, or tin-top if wet.

 

Date changed , I made a boo-boo; sorry.

This is only about an hour away from me but this weekend looks pants weather wise!  Next weekend, 29th and 30th, is the 50th Anniversary Gala so I might look at one of those days if the weather stays OK.
