Erection of the Fairground Heritage
Trust’s new exhibition hall meant that there was sheltered
accommodation for a lot of the Trust’s assets. May 2006 saw the
arrival of the five of the ex-Robert Edwards & Sons rides, most of
which were transported in their original distinctively decorated
trucks and comprised sections of the Dodgem, Ark, Skid, Brooklands
Speedway and Gallopers.
This volume is a rare opportunity
to witness the movement of the loads into the new building, with
some very skilful shunting by Frank Edwards with his immaculate
Scammell Highwayman 'Moonraker'. Valuable four-wheel drive
assistance was provided by Dingles’ own Richard Sandercock.
