Family on long distance journey for days at the seaside

Horse-drawn, colourful Romany caravans made a stately progress through South Lincolnshire as members of an extended family journeyed from Durham to Great Yarmouth last week.

The 262 mile journey from Durham to Yarmouth takes around five hours by car, but the horses took 18 days at a steady walking pace.

Our photographer, Tim Wilson, spotted the family with their caravans in Gosberton on Wednesday. The family are now making their way home to Durham. SG150415-100TW
