The annual Haddenham Steam Rally returns this weekend - with a packed agenda of fun and festivities.
Rally chairman Kelvin Young said: “Among the delights on display will be both full size and miniature steam traction engines, 150 vintage tractors, bygone collections, more than 200 vintage cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles and heavy horses, alongside a selection of trade stands, craft stalls and refreshments.
“We are also pleased to announce that for the first time, children under 16 will be given free entry when with a paying adult. We hope that this will encourage more families to join our fun and friendly rally experience.”
The annual Haddenham Heavy Horse show celebrates its 27th anniversary on Sunday, with competitors from across the country. Heavy horses can be seen at work on both days.
Other working demonstrations for visitors to enjoy include steam ploughing, threshing, baling, stone crushing, wood sawing, corn milling and the popular vintage road making display.
