Hunton Steam Gathering started over 20 years ago as a small group of steam engine owners and enthusiasts getting together and has grown to the size it is now.
A great event with something for everybody, steam engines, cars, fire engines, motorcycles, crafts, displays, food and a beer tent.
We spent happy hours just wandering about taking in the sights and smells and chatting to folks. They were inviting ladies to drive a steam engine and Pam had a go and really enjoyed it. I'm so jealous I think I'll wear a skirt next time we go.
Some astounding engines there. This showmans engine would have been used to tow rides and accommodation from show to show. Sometimes pulling seven trailers, it would have been a slow journey. If a hill was too steep, they would have taken the engine to the top and winched the trailers up one by one.
