In Pictures: Beside the Seaside at Crich

Currently underway is one of the most popular family orientated events of the year at Crich – Beside the Seaside. Lasting for a full nine days the event sees a small part of Derbyshire become a seaside resort – in one of the most landlocked areas of the country! Hazel Quarmby provides us with these photos.

So far during the event Blackpool trams have dominated the service – as would be expected for a seaside event! – although Glasgow 22 and Oporto 273 have also made appearances alongside regular performer access tram, Berlin 223 006-4.

These photos were taken on Sunday 28th May when Blackpool trams 40, 167, 236, 630 and 762 were joined by Oporto 273 in service.

Blackpool 762 and Berlin 223 006-4 wait for Blackpool 236 to clear the interlaced section of track through the Bowes Lyon Bridge.

Oporto 273 pauses at Victoria Park with the seaside fun fair alongside.

Blackpool Toastrack 166 was the unlucky Blackpool tram on this day being confined to the workshop.

Also at Town End we find the other Blackpool trams in service on this day: Brush Railcoach 630 and Pantograph 167. (All Photographs by Hazel Quarmby)

    166 is not in the workshop for any technical reason, fortunately. Simply it’s usual home on 11 road is blocked by a fairground organ for the duration of the event, so it’s being temporarily housed in the workshop on 1 road.
