Steam and Vintage Rally

Emma's first ever report for Lancashire one back in 2011.




With over 20 full-size steam engines including Fred Dibnah’s Steam Collection & his iconic Land Rover, this year's rally became a must for all the family.

In addition there were over 500 vintage & classic vehicles including cars, trucks, tractors, motorbikes & militaryvehicles. There was also a children's vintage fairground with steam gallopers, donkey rides  and a Ladies Marquee featuring crafts and demonstrations.

The Fred Dibnah Collection was on display for the first time since Fred's death in 2004. Visitors were able to see his iconic green 1910 Aveling & Porter Steam Roller, living van and Land Rover, alongside his 1912 Aveling & Porter Traction Engine made famous from Fred's Made in Britain TV series.
