Steaming Day 28th July 2013

The steaming day and vintage transport exhibition on Sunday 28 July was a great success the weather being ideal for the outside events and the Beam Engine House nice and cool. Pride of place was taken with the ad hoc collection of the trust’s own motorised equipment, in daily use around the site and a volunteer’s car which if not vintage, certainly ancient.
We also had a visit from one of our volunteers, Ron Wade, who suffered a stroke and is paraplegic, but determined to keep in touch. He single handed kept the grounds in a reasonable condition and initially stocked the cooling pond with fish.
This visit was no easy task, requiring a private ambulance, three nursing staff and a state of the art life support system wheel chair. Ron said he was pleased with the day out and would try and make it a annual event.

New Blogroll Software

We’ve put a bit of restoration work into the Digital Engines of Crossness so we can get more news, pictures and event descriptions to you in a variety of ways.

If you’re so inclined may we recommend our Twitter feed @crossnessET where you’ll get up to date snippets about events and the day to day happenings at Crossness.

Our Facebook page looks a little closer at the work carried out at Crossness and enables our volunteers, members and followers to share their experiences.

And now our new blogroll is installed you’ll get some great insight from the team who keep this place afloat.
