Came across this bike blessing after walking through the village of Dunham Town the previous day and seeing it advertised out side St. Marks church .
The music by Boss Hogg started at around 12 and by 4pm had finished so very little disturbance was caused to the few residents close by. Refreshments were tea and soft drinks only and with the bikes being immaculate and the riders very friendly no one could call this a rave and it only took 4 officers to police it and their only duty needed was to man the couple of road junctions as the bike parade took place.

The band used a 40` lorry trailer as a stage
Three wheeled, wonder if they call them trikes.
Nicely concealed lighting on the front of this bike.

Just one of the many stunning machines on show.

Below the Rev. Jerry Sutton, who along with his wife own Harley Davidson`s, bless the bikers.

Prayer of Bike Blessing

May god bless you and keep you safe on this machine.
May you meet the risen Lord in your travels,
in the freedom of the open road, the fellowship of other bikers and in each person you meet.
May the lord be with you at home and on the open road.
May he accompany you when you start on your many journeys.
May he fill your life abundantly with his many
May he keep all your riding safe.
May his mercy, grace and love shine upon your
every road.
Father,Son and Holy Spirit.

If after all the blessing and your riding with care all should go wrong then the answer is in the pictures below, make that final journey in the style you lived a motor cycle funeral
must be a bikers dream or nightmare depending how you see it.

Click on the video above to watch the bikers ride by after being blessed. I counted about 100 including some scooters, Vespa Lambretta etc.

Just down the road from the church while walking around the village i came across some steps going over a wall and on the other side I found myself in the grounds of Dunham Massey Hall
Looking round the Hall didn`t appeal to me so I just enjoyed walking through the deer park and past the lakes. Near to the Hall was an old Tudor water mill that was used to grind corn and later in 1860 it was converted to a saw mill and is still in full working order.
The whole property is quite pleasant for a walk around and the fallow deer graze close to the footpaths quite un-disturbed by the presence of people.
