Lamport Hall show is a favourite of ours. It's well organised, has lots to see and even when the weather forecast for the show weekend is bad, someone has a direct line to the top and the weather turns out to be fantastic.

However, because of the poor forecast, we decided not to take Tillie, and so took the Baker Monitor and the R+V


Norma Jean, the Baker Monitor, was much admired and ran sweetly the whole show

Jim's R+V had a few ignitor problems, but Jim managed to sort them out and get it running as well as ever
