Abingdon Michaelmas Street Fair - 2 of 3

Despite threats of rain the weather kept dry. It was a squeeze getting along Ock Street with all the crowds. Just a few pictures of some of the rides.

Jungle Fever with the County Hall alongside

The swing roundabout near Vauxhall Belingers.



Storm. This is one of the two highest rides. Its a giant rotating arm with a little cage at each end.

Finally Chaos.

Fantastic pics as always. Nice to see the tradition of the fair continuing. I first went in 1973 aged 5. We had friends who lived so close to the big wheel that riders could see into their bathroom!

I no longer live in Abingdon but visit family there regularly. Thanks to checking out This Abingdon daily I often know more about what's going on than my dad just up the Radley Road. Keep up the good work!

It is so informative and always with such great photos - THANK YOU :-)
