Mark O'Brien and Nick Raithbyin discussion after Nick has needle gunned the lower part of the boiler barrel - Nigel Hall

A lot milder today at Grosmont but slightly overcast with occasional bursts of sunshine. Another big attendance with Ian Pearson, Jon Bradley, Alan Hardie, Nigel Hall, Derek Shorten, Roy Marshall, Nick Raithby and myself. Nick lives in Newark and travelled travelled up to York by train from Newark (about 50 minutes) and I picked him up from the station, brought him to Grosmont and then dropped him back in the evening for his train home.
