St. Albans Steam and Country Show

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

JUNE 4th and 5th 2016 - ST.ALBANS STEAM AND COUNTRY SHOW

On the weekend of June 4th and 5th 2016 Herts Steam Engine Preservation Society will be again holding their annual steam rally at Oaklands College (Smallford campus) on the edge of St. Albans. All events are subject to ground conditions.

 

We again hope to welcome St. Albans Corporation’s last surviving steam roller, which was delivered to the city in 1913 from Aveling & Porter of Rochester.

 

The annual rally is now a well established event in the summer calendar of outside events, and will follow on from the success of previous events on this site.  Over 30 full size steam engines will be presented in all their glory, in addition to old farm tractors, classic cars and lorries plus other bygones from our rich industrial and agricultural heritage. This event makes an enjoyable but affordable day out for both the family and enthusiast.

 

A full day's entertainment will be available for everyone.  In addition to the old engines and farm equipment there will be stalls, a fairground and refreshments including a licensed bar. Demonstrations will be set up to show how the old equipment was used in days gone by. A working sawbench, thrashing machine, stone crusher, and other machinery will be at work. Ring events and parades will enable all the mobile exhibits to be moved on the field (if weather conditions allow)

 

For youngsters these steaming monsters provide both entertainment and education, a total contrast with the high-tec era we now live in.  However, some of the older generation will remember steam rollers at work, while before the last world war steam wagons regularly pounded through St. Albans carrying long distance loads.

 

The event will be held in the grounds of Oaklands College, just off the A1057 Hatfield Road, St. Albans, (Approx Satnav code AL4 0XR) and is only three miles from Junction 3 of the A1(M) motorway. There are frequent bus services (routes 300, 301, 724) from Hatfield or St. Albans railway stations which pass the site. Open from 10.00 to 5 p.m. on both days, entry charges have been held unchanged for 2016 at £6.00 for adults, £3.00 for children, £5 for Seniors or £15.00 for a family ticket. Car parking is included.  

 

The rally is promoted by Herts Steam Club Ltd on behalf of the Society. More information on the rally and our other activities is available at our website, www.hertssteam.co.uk or email enquiries@hertssteam.co.ukAll rally enquiries to: Mark Waite (HSCL), 13 Mountview Avenue, DUNSTABLE, Beds LU5 4DS.
