Magna Carta 800th anniversary

We tried to enter Lynn Rewet as part of the flotilla of small boats taking part in these celebrations but our entry was too late. As I was visiting relatives nearby on the Saturday, I popped down to Cookham to watch the first day’s events. Well worth the trip to see Gloriana, her retinue and the various festivities and re-enactments. I have attached a few pictures just to give you a taste of the day. CRABlakeney had more success and made the main flotilla.
