Audlem village centre, the playing field and the canal were packed today for the Audlem Transport Festival and Gathering of Historic Narrow Boats.

A number of photographs are now on the Events Gallery and more will follow.

More detailed reports will follow on what was a fabulous parade and spectacle seemingly enjoyed by many thousands.
