Heatons Bridge Inn - Free Military Vehicle Display

THE Heatons Bridge Military Vehicle Group is holding another open weekend with military vehicles and displays at the Heatons Bridge Inn, Burscough, on 3 October and 4 October 2015.   As usual, the public are welcome to come, there are no admission or other charges involved, and there will be a range of military vehicles on show of all eras from WW2 onwards. (Also, anyone with a military vehicle of their own would be welcome to join us over the weekend. They just need to contact me for details). The group now hold these events twice a year at the Inn (courtesy of proprietors Steve and Jacqui Winrow) and this is the 2nd event (a 'chill-out' or wind-down) for 2015.   The Heatons Bridge Inn boasts a good range of real ales and food all given names to reflect the military theme. The vehicles which attend include:- Willys, Ford, Hotchkiss and Austin Champ Jeeps, Landrovers, 4 ton trucks, a Saracen armoured personnel carrier, military motorbikes, and military staff cars. Members displays include a range of militaria including various:- firearms, bayonets and other weapons, uniforms, radio equipment and field equipment. A regular part of the display is also a 25 pounder field gun rig belonging to Frank and Angie Brown (our Secretary) comprising a Morris Quad tractor unit, which tows an ammunition limber behind, and the field gun itself behind that! At the last event this entire rig could be seen taking on the challenging terrain of the off-road hill course at Burscough airfield. Quite a sight!! The Inn itself is located on the canal at Heatons Bridge and the grounds still retain the World War 2 freestanding brick pillbox which formed part of the home-guard defence provisions.   If you can print off and display a poster for the event, Please click on here new.
