A Bit More Steam, Bressingham Steam Museum, Norfolk - 26th August 2013

It's a nice day, it's a bank holiday weekend, and the annual season ticket is about to run out, so we head off to nearby Bressingham Steam Museum for another go of the gallopers, steam trains and a walk in the gardens. The gardens are somewhat like those of Alton Towers - tucked away, somewhat overshadowed by everything else, but well worth a look. A few days before, it's raining so there's nothing much else to do apart from eat a hotdog in the van down by The Mere.
