Castlefield Event - 26th Oct 2013 - The Barrow

Potatoes would have been unloaded from the boat and transported by barrow to the potato markets. This rare street trader's barrow is thought to be similar to those used but we have yet to find out...any information gratefully received....

Cllr Carmine Grimshaw gets his barrow out of storage - recently repaired for this event

Back on the road - Carmine pushes the barrow past the eerily empty  old market trader's site on Church Street

Calling in at McCalls - the last traders on Church Street, now housed with a more permanent stall

Collecting the produce that Alex King, of the Oxnoble, has kindly stored for the event

Nona and Carmine display the produce on the barrow under the arches at Castlefield
