Staying in Brum for the night after POL and then going up to this, then back to Swansea Sunday evening, looks a great setting. Lovely part of the country, years ago took an old narrow boat back to London from Caldon canal by Froghall . Hope it's a good turn out.🤞

A good turnout at this event today, with the weather holding out too (although the ground conditions were iffy in places, as illustrated by our tyres!)
