Beamish Museum WW1 Transport~ Part 4

Part 1 HERE     Part 2 HERE   Part 3 HERE  

Coming to the end of our day out now and first off some WW1 Nurses

Nurses and Burgers

There were quite a few horse-drawn buggies with WW1 re-enactors driving them






as well as the odd motor vehicle

and a genuine WW1 airplane, though it might need some restoration yet

We had lunch in one of the cafe’s


and rode on this bus to take ‘aerial’ shots 🙂


Quick March
Madam Formidable calls a taxi


They had some horses ploughing fields

not much scattering going on.

and I used my telephoto to take some pictures of the horses and owners

true love
Bored now
Chocolate Chip Cookies (the horse pinched one 🙂 )
smiley man

When we got off the bus we stood and watched everyone and everything go by

it’s a dog’s life..
Bus conductor-ess
The 114 to Byker

but mostly I just loved all the horses


and that’s about it, except for my award for most appropriately dressed person of the day goes to…


Geordie Shore 🙂

Well if you’ve got it, flaunt it! 😀

So that’s the end of our trip to Beamish this time, there’ll be others I’m sure as they have a lot of events on, and once you buy your ticket, you can go as many times a year as you want.

All pictures can be clicked on to embiggen where they look even better cos you can see more stuff in them. 🙂

The full album (which has a fair few more photo’s) can be found HERE

Stay tooned for the next adventure!

  1. Fun times. Love that WWI cell phone for calling taxis. We have a B17 that flew into town and we went out and crawled around in it.

  2. Can’t beat a ‘proper’ lens!
    Great shots again, that place really delivered. I love the juxtaposition of the people dressed as WW1 characters using mobiles, and eating fast food. And rounding off with the bum cheeks was inspired indeed! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I was trying to work out which period Madame Formidable was representing, but it seemed to be a mixed bag, not just because of the mobile.

    How lovely to spend a day with so many horses about.

  4. Star Trek ‘The Voyage Home came to mind when I saw the WWI mobile phone 🙂 Love the whole series of pictures, some lovely horses (with feet) or would that be hocks? The little pit pony is Malinas favourite 🙂


  5. We really must make it to Beamish sometime – I KNOW it’s excellent. Your photos are just superb – great composition and so clear. And they really made an effort, didn’t they? Loved Madame Formidable – less certain about the refugee from the Bigg Market at the end 🙂

    1. It’s worth checking out the event section of their website, there’s sometimes war related events, usually a classic car event which is fab, and quite a lot of stuff for young’uns which we tend to avoid 🙂
