MIDDLEWICH WARTIME WEEKEND


At 2.55pm on Saturday 22nd September one of the enduring symbols of Wartime Britain, a Spitfire, flew over Middlewich as part of the Wartime Middlewich Weekend and Steven Doyle was on hand to capture this excellent picture of the iconic plane.

The spirit of wartime returned to Middlewich over the weekend of September 21st -23rd 2012 as  the second Middlewich Wartime Weekend hit town.
Details of the events organised can be found here.

Chris Frost: I have to say that I'm immensely proud of the efforts that Middlewich people put in to events like this. Organising something like the Middlewich War Weekend and the other events is no small feat and it says a lot about the dedication of those who work so hard to make these things happen. Outstanding. Thank you!

Jim Moores: I would just like to express my appreciation to all those involved in organizing this and all the other festivals (FAB, Roman, Norman etc) that we are very lucky to have in Middlewich throughout the year. Thank you very much!

Bill Armsden: Just thinking about the weekend we have just had in Middlewich! 
Wow, wow and wow again. To the hard workers who were responsible for planning and staging the event.... thank you. To all the people who took part and made it a success.... thank you. 
To the weather, thank you for a great Saturday and most of Sunday.

  1. Yesterday (Saturday 22nd) I was gardening in Middlewich. Hearing the sound of piston driven Merlin engines I looked up and saw the Spitfire banking a half mile North over the town. It was an exciting time as Id not seen a Spitfire since some thirty years previous. It's still an awesome aeroplane to behold.
