Ally Pally exhibition

Mr P and I visited the BRM sponsored MRC exhibition at Alexandra Palace yesterday.

Because on engineering works at the Cross we took the London Overground up to Highbury & Islington and then Great Northern to Alexandra Palace.

After a walk up the hill (both wishing we’d caught the bus) and a pint we went round the exhibition.

One observation was that it was a case of hunt the layout due to the vast number of trade stands. Some layouts we had both seen before whilst others were new to us.

Here are the photos

& of course the scale no exhibition should be without

All in all a good exhibition. Also we had an ahhh moment – hedgehog 🦔 numbers are seriously reduced so fundraising well in hand!

Bus back to the station and some LNER action whilst waiting for the train home.
