Marple Locks Festival

It is that time again !!
The Marple Locks Festival only comes around every two years and it was on Sun 5th July.

This year the sun and the event did us proud.

There were, large boats and small boats, one even pulled by a horse.

The Trust had the usual stall and Kevin Dranfield took a guided walk along the Marple Tramway.

There seemed to be many more stalls with lots to see and things for the children to have a go at.

Many thanks to all who helped to organise it again.
