Firstly, we’d like to thank everybody who supported our event this year, despite the weather on Saturday itwas a resounding success.
Many of you will be aware that this year was our last at Sparrows End. We have enjoyed our time there and would like to thank our hosts for looking after us so well for five years.
We can confirm that next year’s event will be on 25th & 26th April. We are moving across town to Carver Barracks (Debden Aerodrome) .
The Committee and helpers would like to wish you a very Happy New Year. We hope that 2019 brings you peace and happiness, and happy times spent at excellent vintage events 😉
Preparations for this year’s show are now well underway. We are planning another Special Display, this time showcasing the various living vans that housed the men, and sometimes their families, that worked with steam engines.
Of course we shall still have all our usual attractions and exhibits!
We’re delighted to announce a large entry of full size steam engines for this year’s event. Many of the old favourites will be attending, and as always there will be some engines visiting us for the first time!
This evening we feature this lovely Burrell traction engine “The Duchess”, recently purchased by the Haylock family, and seen on the road in Ashdon, near Saffron Walden.
Preparations are well under way for this year’s Crank Up, to include a special display telling the story of Ploughing.
A site meeting was held today and the ground was found to be in excellent condition. We look forward to seeing you on 12th & 13th May!
