The International Steam Pages


Belper Steam and Vintage Event, (10th - 11th June, 2017)

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 2017.


The Belper Event is at the 'small' end of the scale and has been blighted by the weather in recent years, mainly, as far as I can see, because the surface of the show venue is totally unsuitable, being basically waste clay. While the ground at the Wiltshire Rally on the Saturday had been at worst soft, that here was squelchy to the extent that the rollers were unable to move and other engines were liable to get stuck at any moment and need to be pulled away by a modern tractor. Fortunately, the ground dried a bit on the morning of our visit and as a result half the engines were able to take part in a truncated grand parade. Three of those that did decided to go in convoy so they offer immediate assistance if necessary:

The weather was better than forecast. We had left home under heavy grey skies but found patches of blue sky developing as the brisk wind blew the clouds across. With patience, I got a fair set of pictures from our three hour stay. I did not check out the whole site, but Yuehong told me there she had seen no steam in the working area.
