Fuller do.

Danny waiting to go to work.
Pull Danny pull.
Danny pulled Ilford from Newcastle Road lock to the top of Lime Kiln Lock.
Steam Rollers arrive.
Fred Dibnah's Aveling & Porter Steam Roller (1910) - "Betsy" - was bought and fully restored in his own workshops and is now run by his son's Jack and Roger, who were both at the weekend do.
Boats of all shapes and sizes.
Martin Fuller's Cutter.
Winding time.
Dinner bonfire style.
Roller fun.
Mind that blade. 
Roger showed off his saw, wow it was incredible.
I supplied coal to Jack and Roger who run Betsy. Apparently she loved the large house coal. We took Roger Fuller's tug to Hadar and I unloaded the coal from the hold and we placed it on the tug which then took us all back to the basin, where we unloaded it on to Roger's railway, the train then took the coal around the yard to Betsy, who was waiting for a top up.
As you can see we had a wild and wonderful weekend.
