Beamish - Roads And Rails 2/7

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 1

One of the most gentile ways of getting about the large area at Beamish is by pony and trap like this one. Needless to say this is a popular attraction so we didn't bother to wait for a chance to ride in it.

Lovely picture of this beautifully turned-out rig, Brian. Unusual to see a team of three horses harnessed this way.
Brian Walbey: I don't recall seeing a three horse outfit before myself.
As Ray says, unusual to see three horses like this, a nice shot of them, Brian.

Those horses are beautiful!!

Oh, I have to count the legs to know how many horses are here! Three powerful horses in front of one carriage - that's unusual.
Brian Walbey: I don't recall seeing a three horse outfit before myself.
Everyone seems to be concentrating hard Brian.
Brian Walbey: I guess with three horses among a crowd of visitors the driver has to concentrate on what he is doing.

Life as it was in my father's childhood
Brian Walbey: And my fathers, he, and my Grandad worked on a local farm where horses were still in use at the time.
The Reliant Robin of horse arrangements
Brian Walbey: I never thought of it like that.
A nice shot. I'd love that ride too.
Brian Walbey: We just watched them go by, they looked so good.
This is a cracking shot Brian you have captured the movement so well
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
I love to see a matching team! Wonderful!
Brian Walbey: I don't recall seeing a three horse outfit before.

What a lovely picture, a fine way travel
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anne, it would have been nice to have a ride in the buggy.

Lovely! I can just imagine the clippetty-clop of the horses' hooves. What an attractive building in the background.
Brian Walbey: Looks good doesn't it. The building is the bus and tram stop.
Whooo - a three horse trap - there's posh! The farmer who brought our milk around, back in the day, had a pony and trap - but that was certainly a one pony affair!
Brian Walbey: So this brings back a memory then Tom, that's nice.
but you made a nice photo out of it, Brian. and i like the green iron work seen behind.
Brian Walbey: It would have been nice to have had a ride but time didn't allow.
