The Hammerman Tour - A Magnificent day out

Looking suitably pleased with themselves, behind their immense statuesque stare of pointless grandeur, are one Alan H and the notable DR Sweeney, posing as men most contented with their pie and first pint of the day on The Hammerman Tour, our Magnificent Day Out when we celebrate local history, culture and geography with a song and tipple or two.

And our very many hats must be doffed to this pair (and a few others) for their care and attention to detail in organizing this year's event, that took in Swindon's fantastic STEAM exhibition and commemoration of all things railway (a definite longer visit required to do it justice), the Glue Pot pub nearby, walks up Liddington Hill and along the Thames (in the encroaching gloaming), South Marston to visit the home and final resting place of Alfred Williams, the Hammerman Poet himself.  

More pictures and recordings to emerge shortly, but for now, here are the blokes in action with their first song of the day in the tunnel under the Railway in the centre of Swindon.
