Just noticed that this is on tomorrow, Saturday.

Might try and get to this, I've been before but not for a few years. It's not huge, from memory, but worth a ride out I think.

A few photos from Saturday. Taking photos indoors was not without its problems, due to the lighting, but they give an idea of what was there. It's a shame that so few 1950s and earlier commercials turn up.

It's an earlier version of Scammell's mechanical horse (note the sign boards in the background).

There were quite a few good stalls there, not too much modern tat, so better than I'd expected - although nothing there for me this time of any magnitude.

Yes, it is a TK. Nice vehicles unless you had to work on the engine! Surprisingly it was not a tilt cab. Bedford got that part of the design quite wrong.
