June 1st and not long to Appleby Horse Fair. By happy chance this was the colourful scene in the car park at Settle station as Michael Ransley and caravan waited to collect a friend off the 1545 from Carlisle. He told me his journey this year had started in Cornwall.
In good journalistic style I asked for the horses' names. You need to know that the black and white one on the right is called Tarateeno andthe one on the left is called Findus Lassagne. Food for thought.
