Re: Travelers return to Ashton

Appleby horse fair finished on 12th June so they may be travelling back from there.
Council may be glad that they are eating the grass off as it will save the expense of mowing !

Re: Travelers return to Ashton

Good thinking, Karin. Out of curiosity, what sort of daily mileage would be reasonable for a strong fit horse towing a wooden caravan? If heading South, Landgate comes just before the big slope up to Bryn traffic lights. A good stop-off after a long day's treck?

Presumably their nose-bag fuel is unleaded, to ensure cleaner exhaust emissions?

Town: Pit Pony Parish
