    Thanks. There is a surprising lack of publicity this year - or I just haven't noticed the posters around.

    Well, I got there eventually, after two failed attempts. The road under the rail bridge by the canal in Great Haywood was a little too deep, and the road under the rail bridge on Meadow Lane in Little Haywood was also too deep, so I went all the way round by Wolseley Bridge. As I went carefully past the Lamb & Flag a torrent of muddy water was flowing out of Coley Lane.

    But I got there - although numbers did seem slightly down, it was well worth the effort.

    These days, all the layouts are to a high standard, but this was exceptionally good - all that was missing was the smell.

    A taxi driver shoved his way past me when I was leaving enough space for the chap in front to turn round.

    I stayed to watch him go through it, but, sadly, he chickened out.

    Numbers seemed well down today as well. Did hear a suggestion that this might be the last of these shows, hope not. @Gramaisc did you see inside the tent on the Martini Halt layout?
