The event was held at the Hoops pub on Saturday, May 21, and raised money for local charities and the village pensioners outing.

Three local Showman's Road Locomotives were there, along with a Garrett Showman's Steam Tractor, two Aveling and Porter steam rollers and a recently restored Sentinel S4 Waggon.

The full-sized engines were joined by several miniature engines, as well as vintage and classic cars, motorbikes and tractors.

A display of Mamod steam engines won The Bob Clarke Memorial Trophy for best exhibit.
