Countdown to / Compte à Rebours vers Buxton 2023

Following Alain Ciezlak's excellent pictorial countdown last year, Jim Marriott has taken up the baton on behalf of the Friends of Oignies. There will be a new picture representing Buxton available every week, along with some curious, and often little known facts; a series of 48 images leading up to the date when les Amis de Buxton arrive.
