Her is the lollipop I got from Duncan the barber - see yesterday's post and . . . .
. . . . this is the gate valve - the tap - that was mounted vertically alongside the water crane. The picture shows it sat in my trailer. Two of us tried to lift it off the trailer but it was impossible for us. We decided it would have to wait until a Rugby team happened by. Lo and behold our prayers were answered that instant in the form of four of Settle's finest - members of the Constabulary hurrying to catch a train. Assuring them there was time, I diverted them and the job was done in no time. Thank you lads.
