Learning from another local that a wide load would be coming through, I got out my camera.
A police driver surveys the cars that really shouldn't have been parked across from the church, if their owners had read the notices that had been sent to residents (admittedly, one belonged to the vicar from the next village, but you'd think someone would have told her):
The first lorry arrives outside The Derwent Hotel:
While the escort vehicle assesses how much room they have between the parked cars and the churchyard wall:
The second lorry arrives:
And the first decides to try to get through:
The second lorry's driver doesn't think his load will go over the top of the last remaining parked car:
But someone drags the car's owner out of bed, and the cavalcade can continue on its way:
Who says nothing ever happens in villages?
