Market Day in Great Eccleston

 

Great Eccleston is half way between Garstang and Poulton-le-Fylde

 

The first of several level hay meadows - this one is next to the River Wyre

 

Part of the thirty strong party

 

Foot traffic only on this bridge over the River Wyre at Upper Rawcliffe

 

One of many properties in the Rawcliffe area

 

Alan & Len reflect upon their journey

 

Come dine with me
