A wet morning at the Three Greyhounds
This weekend a meeting of traction engines that previously took place at Acton Bridge was held at the Three Greyhounds near Cranage, Cheshire. I couldn't get there yesterday as I was conducting tours on Concorde and Nimrod at the Manchester Airport Runway Visitor Park, and today the weather was awful; wet and very windy.
I arrived at lunchtime today to find many engines had already departed for home. Just a handful were left, and they, too, were in the process of preparing to leave.
