Only 36 Hours Late!
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

November 14, 2011: Sorry, only a day and a half late! What do you expect after us being up all night Friday? You got the exclusive Metal Man pic didn't you? Snatched sleep on a pine floor after the morning pull did some good and we even went home for an hour at 9pm, but the hounds and horse called us back by 11pm and then it was the criers and then the afternoon procession, after which our brain turned to mush and it proved impossible to understand anything except taking more images - 12 GB in all over the 2 days. Here's one of the final pics from the evening procession to keep you going. Further uploads have started here and will continue over the next days, day job allowing. Highlights of the evening procession included a beautiful white flying horse and chariot (which my colleague Neil will feature here shortly), a clever comic float from the Hancock team and an excellent Circus float from the Highampton crew.
