I took a break from working on Lady Jane, and visited the Odiham Fire Show, which is held annually around about this time.
The show featured fire engines from horse drawn cart times right through to the modern, high tech, fire engines of today. Really interesting and well worth a visit for anyone interested in stuff.
When I get the time I'll post more pictures into Flickr.
The picture shows a shack burning furiously while a fire crew prepares to tackle the blaze. To be honest I think the shack had pretty much burnt itself out before any serious water was sprayed on it.
I was told that the proper, local, fire brigade were standing by, just in case.
It was a really great day, probably greatly assisted by our proximity to the beer tent and hog roast.
