Lovely photos of Clumber by Mick Hill

Mick Hill has taken some lovely photos, and this time, I managed to encourage him to take some action shots to complement the lovely static shots of past events.

I think these are some of the best National Fire Service action photos ever!


The Historical Maritime Society are based in Todmorden, Lancashire & re-enact periods of Nelson’s Navy & also portray R.N. Commando during WWII. Visitors to Wartime Clumber Park were very lucky to see their replica MK8 motorised wooden canoe in operation. Combined Operations Pilotage Parties Units (COPPS) used these canoes for reconnaissance & raids in the latter stages of WWII. Built in three sections with a detachable bow & stern, 2 stabilising outriggers, maritime engine & paddles, a lateen sail can also be attached.

About lowdhamstation

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.
