After a late night (2.00am to be exact) we got up for breakfast on a lovely sunny day..
We paid the pound to go on the platform and see the little museum and old carriages and engines on display.
Early afternoon we walked to the Rising Sun pub and took on more refreshments before we called a cab and went to Ibstock.
In Ibstock it was the Poppy Fields festival. It was only 10 minutes in the car, and our friend (Shipmate) Mark was playing in his Queen tribute band "Forever Queen"
The whole show was done in aid of the British Legion, and it was a bit of a shame as it just didn't get very busy, but it was good for us..
