Ashley Hall Traction Engine Rally (23rd - 25th May, 2015)

This is one of a series of pages which I have uploaded to illustrate facets of steam rallies we have attended in the UK. Such events occur all over the country in the summer months, they are easily found by using your favourite search engine and may have anything between a handful of steam engines and hundreds (as at the Great Dorset Steam Fair which could probably be fairly described as having an excess of riches). Click here for the overall index for 2015.


As far as I known this was the first Ashley Hall event, promoted by the same people who organise the similar established events, the Astle Park Traction Engine Rally and the Cheshire Steam Fair. 

We attended on the Saturday and found it to be a medium small rally, we recorded 24 full size road engines plus the steam fire engine. Some 30 had been promised and maybe more will have pitched up later in the weekend. It's an excellent site, the organisation seemed impeccable and the price was reasonable given that it was a plain vanilla traditional show. Despite the generally sunny weather, the surface was damp and any rain would soon have caused problems. We go up this way once or twice a year, it's quite a way from our base in West Gloucestershire up the A49 but that's a pleasant drive which is more than can be said for the quicker alternative of the M50 / M5 / M6. 

Details below were taken from my own records and also David Collidge's Steam Scenes site http://www.steamscenes.org.uk/ which continues to be the most reliable source of information.
