or are smaller children’s rides.

By early afternoon most of the bigger rides were nearing completion, including the Sky Ride at the bottom of Ock street. The owner said the ride is two years old and cost £400k. He went on to say as soon as he’s finished setting up here he was going to drive to Nottingham where his late Grand fathers, 1880 Golden gallopers have been thrilling the crowds. Tonight he will dismantle the gallopers, drive them to the next destination, then drive back to Abingdon tomorrow to operate his Sky Ride.
