The International Steam Pages


The Museum of East Anglian Life (MEAL) 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 (since 2013). 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 2017 index.


With a dull second day in prospect at Weeting, we changed our plans and visited MEAL in Stowmarket, mainly to see the two Burrell ploughing engines although the other engines and the museum as a whole were very attractive too.
