Audlem Transport Festival

Home » Newsroom » Audlem Transport Festival

Don't forget that this weekend, 28th July 2013 is the 13th annual Audlem Festival of Transport. This event has grown in popularity and this year it is expected to attract over 300 vehicles and a large number of canal boats.

Over 300 vintage cars, vans, trucks, buses are expected to join the parade from Hankelow to Audlem. The parade starts at 12.00pm from Hankelow Green. The vehicles then process to Audlem and will be available for viewing on the village playing field off Cheshire Street. You will also be able to view a large number of vintage canal boats at the Audlem Warf next to Audlem Mill and the Shroppie Fly — and if you don't fancy the walk along the towpath you can take the Audlem Lass water taxi to the bottom of lock 15 for a small donation to the RNLI!
