I wish I had been able to visit this gala on the Saturday as it was sunny sadly I had other things to do worse luck.
The railway has installed a foot crossing at Market Bosworth station and this was the first weekend its been open to the public so I had to go and have a look. There is still a hell of a lot of work to do and seeing as its only manned by very friendly volunteers I would imagine it will take a while to sort out!
