In Pictures: Edwardian Event at the Crich Tramway Village
Over the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th July the Crich Tramway Village held another special event with an Edwardian Weekend. A regular tram service operated over both days which included horse tram Sheffield 15 on the Sunday with other trams such as Blackpool & Fleetwood 2, Blackpool 40, Sheffield 74, London United Tramways 159 and Glasgow 1068 also seeing use during the weekend. On top of the trams there were also plenty of other Edwardian activities including re-enactors. Woodies Wings – a parrot and owl rescue centre – were also on site with one of their Parrots taking a ride on board a remote controlled car!
