The Stoke Row Road Run

This year’s Stoke Row Road Run was blessed with many exhibits and excellent weather. Engines made their way from the Greenaway’s yard and other locations to The Sun at Whitchurch Hill for lunch. An inundated landlady made everyone very welcome. The route proceeded a slightly different way back via the Black Lion at Woodcote. An evening barbecue and social gathering was held back at the Greenaway’s yard. Engines present were:

  1. Aveling Roller 10282 “Stoneybroke” – Ewan Davis

Noel Greenaway’s Garrett tractor didn’t take part in the run, but was in steam in the evening providing the lights. A great time was had by all – better than a rally, as the saying goes.
