Full Steam Ahead to Oxhill

Late afternoon of Saturday the 16 July, saw the arrival of no less than Four Magnificent Steam Engines Each engine was towing its own trailer of equipment plus a further trailer for accommodation.

Having spoken with the 8 people, who I think were all under forty years old, male and female crews, they said that, they go out on trips as often as they can, work and holidays permitting,  to attend Steam Shows,  around the country.

This was as big trip of some 350 to 400 plus miles, starting off from their homes in Chester at the end of June, making their way to a Show at Northampton. Leaving Northampton this morning at 0600 am and arriving in Oxhill at 0600 pm for an overnight stay, that's an approx 12 hrs journey of about  50 miles. They planned to stay overnight in the lay-by, top of Whatcote Road. Then off early Sunday morning to their next Steam Show near Upton On Severn, in Worcester, after that Show they return home, having completed their slow, but no doubt,  worthwhile and unique journey.
