More Steam!

Our Steam Secretary has been in touch to let us know that he’s received more steam entries, all of which are return visitors to our event!

Paul Whipps will be driving over with his speedy Wallis steam tractor, which was built in Basingstoke and spent the first years of its life in Hampshire.

Nick Allen and family are bringing their Aveling & Porter steam roller, which spent its working life in Cambridge

Melvyn Camps is steaming down from Wimbish with his Sentinel steam waggon, that worked on the Isle of Wight and is fitted with a three-way tipping body

and the Pumfrey family are bringing their Ruston, Proctor traction engine again.  This engine has been owned by the family since new, and worked commercially in the local area, at times within a stone’s-throw of the Crank Up site.

That’s it for this update, but here is a picture of the Ruston engine threshing in Little Chesterford in 1928.
