Mansfield Fire Museum

Young Michael and I took the K2 and trailer pump, and met Paul and Ryan there event last Sunday. Had a good, but fairly low-key. We did two demonstrations, morning and afternoon, showing use of stirrup pumps (the kids always love having a go), and we had the grey Coventry Climax running in the morning (but it wouldn’t start in the afternoon). Nice to be able to use a fire hydrant.

I am a director of a small (and very technical) business, a committed Christian, a Reader (and preacher) in my local village church, husband to my dear Frances, am interested in heritage railways, and heritage fire engines. I currently run a group that displays wartime and early post-war fire engines at 1940s re-enacting events and steam engine rallies. O yes, and vintage cars and motorbikes, and we live in a Victorian railway station.
