Major disaster on Tuesday December 1st 2015 at the Village. A fire started in the rear building adjacent to the Workshop. It looks like we have lost several vehicles under repair/restoration including our beautiful red 1934 Ford truck, a TE20 Ferguson, maybe two Allis Chalmers tractors, numerous stationary engines and machinery and ALL our tools and machinery, bandsaw, circular saw, lathe, planer, hand tools etc. etc. Not looking forward to clearing up the mess. PS The Carols in the Village will still be going ahead as planned on Saturday 5th Dec.. We are lucky that none of our main buildings or displays are affected.
