On Sunday 24th of July the Festival will pay homage to steam engines and machines of a past era.

Hugely popular as unique items of interest there will be several working examples of typical steam engines on display, some dating back to the early 1900s.

Before the large scale production of industrial machinery, steam powered engines were used in many areas of construction and industry. Our display gives insight to how early steam engines were used across a diverse range of applications, including road works and stone crushing.
