Woolpit Steam at Wetherden, Suffolk - 3rd June 2007

For some reason, this event is known as Woolpit Steam, despite it cleary skirting the outside edge of the village of Wetherdeb. Nosher has passed its "heads-up" signs for several years, before finally deciding to have a scope this year. Isobel meets up there, having driven over from Cambridge, for a couple of hours poking around.
