Welcome to the website of the Saffron Walden Crank Up.
People from the local area and beyond with an interest in steam and vintage vehicles, may well remember the “Crank Ups” organised by Paul Engelmann at Shire Hill in Saffron Walden for many years from the 1970s until the early 2000s.
Building on the success of events held at Audley End over the last few years, the East Anglian Traction Engine Society, with Paul’s permission, revived the Crank Up last year to the delight of the exhibitors and visiting public alike.
The event’s new home is adjacent to “Just Like Wendy’s”, Sparrows End, Newport, Saffron Walden CB11 3TU, just off the B1052 near its junction with the B1383.
A Family Day out! – Admission just £5 per adult, with accompanied children free, and free car parking!
GATES OPEN 10.00am – 5.00pm
The Crank-Up was always well regarded for its friendly, relaxed atmosphere and the large variety in exhibits, and it is hoped that this event continues this tradition.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday & Sunday, 7th & 8th May 2016
Keep checking back on this website for details of future Crank Ups, and keep the second weekend in May clear in your diary!
