The Saffron Walden Crank Up

The same great show on a great new site!

26th & 27th APRIL 2025

Gates Open 10.00am Both Days (Last entry 3.30 pm)

The Saffron Walden Crank Up is a steam and vintage vehicle show that was started in the early 1970s by the late Paul Engelmann at Shire Hill.  Since 2015 the event has been run by the East Anglian Traction Engine Society, and next year’s event will be the fourth at Carver Barracks, on the former Debden Aerodrome.

Come along and see huge traction engines, and smaller ones too!  Vintage vehicles of all sorts, tractors, stationary engines, fairground organs  and a host of bygone attractions.

There will be a vintage funfair too, trade and craft stalls, hot and cold refreshments available, as well as a beer tent.

Fun for all the family!

NEXT YEAR’S RALLY will be held on 26th & 27th April 2025

at Carver Barracks, near Saffron Walden. CB10 2YA.



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.
