We walked from Byfield station to the junction with Byfield Mines and here found, isolated on a piece of track, the saddle tank "Cherwell." She had worked at both Charwelton and Byfield, but now her days in action were over. She was transported to New Street Recreation Ground in Daventry to become a plaything for local kids, but in 2001 she was rescued. She is now at Rushden Transport Museum where one day she may be restored. What a pleasure that would be.
