Boat" [5.4m (17' 9") wide, 5.85m (19' 3") high, 24.86 (81') long and
weigh 59000kgs] comes through the village. The builders are unknown but
are in Quy. The transport firm is Abbey.
First sign was the arrival of the first
(of 3) police escort vehicles
This was set to prevent vehicles entering
The boat transporter passing The White
..and along Swan Lane
You don't get an impression of the huge
size from this picture
Passing Gable Cottage.....
...and then The White Horse
The transporter is accompanied by vans to
cut trees and move telephone cables
The procession disappears up Windmill
...towards the A142 & A14
