Wow. Off the beaten track but well worth a few hours of anyone’s time! Tucked away in beautiful rolling hills & fields it is an Aladdin’s cave of funfair history. The collection is extensive. Showman’s caravans nestle among penny arcade games & vintage carousel horses....More

If you have it on your phone I think it should be ok. Check with the venue first or find a local library where you can usually get to a printer.
