Barton on Humber

I arrived Friday afternoon to be greeted by Ian and Linda and the usual welcoming cuppa. The only other unit on site at that time was Ron and Eunice. We were later joined by day visitors, Nanette Jackson and Jean Barwick (nice to see you both). After tea we piled into the Rally Arms for refreshments (largely supplied by Nanette. Thank you), a chat, a few drinks and a late night. During the evening Gwen arrived, and after introductions, Ian left us to help erect her tent.

Saturday was the day Ian had arranged for us to have a railtour of the nearby Scunthorpe Steelworks. We piled into two cars and got there in plenty of time for the afternoon tour. We toured miles of sidings in an old DMU set hauled by a little saddle tank. We were given a full commentary for the whole two hours of everything that we saw which made the whole experience that much more enjoyable {look out for questions in Linda’s next quiz).

On return to the Site, we were met by more day visitor’s, Gordon and Sandy. Saturday evening again in the Rally arms for the Cheese and Wine party, and another late night.

Sunday and another of Ian’s famous breakfasts to get the day going. Soon it was time for coffee and the Raffle, before taking the tent down and preparing for home.

Another enjoyable weekend with good friends. Thank you Ian and Linda for again hosting and looking after us.
