Don't forget that this weekend will see the 14th annual Audlem Festival of Transport. This fantastic event is organised by ASET and is growing in popularity. Last year, with over 300 vehicles and many canal boats lining the waterways, visitors were spoilt for choice.
Approximately 330 vintage cars, vans, trucks and buses are expected to join the 2014 parade from Hankelow to Audlem. The parade starts at 11.00am from Hankelow Green when it will proceed to Audlem along the designated route through the village to the display site which once again will be the village playing field off Cheshire Street. Here the entrants will be parked for viewing by the public for the remainder of the day. A record number of vintage canal boats are expected at the Audlem Warf next to Audlem Mill and the Shroppie Fly.
