Default Belper Steam Rally Cancelled, 11th/12th June.

Not sure about the 'Harsh Winter' though, we didn't have one and only live ten miles from there?

I think it is more water than winter The ground everywhere is absolutely sodden. We went to ravenglass a couple of weeks ago and so much of the land is saturated you can see why they get the flooding problems. The water can do nothing but run off and flood.
They should neer have stopped dredging the rivers.

It isn't a good site anyway Peter, reclaimed opencast colliery ground and they have had many problems with it over the years if it turns wet. I don't attend the rally, I had 'issues' with the steward 20 years ago when it was actually in Belper and haven't bothered since.
