We were invited to film at the recent Weald of Kent Steam Rally which took place in August in Woodchurch. It was a remarkable day that we were there although the rally itself was spread over two days and attracted traction and steam engines from all across the UK.
We had the opportunity to see these incredible machines, some which were built in the 1800’s up close and personal and we got to meet and chat with their owners.
We have produced a short film about the day which shows some of the things we saw, traction engines, steam engines, steam powered machinery, aircraft, motorbikes and tractors. We shot guns, we rode on steam engines and we ate fudge – it was a great day out!
Find out more about some of these engines, check out the Showman (below) and find out about road making ‘back in the good old days’ and more!
Take a look at our video and see for yourself.
The Steam movement is very much alive and well, with some great people and their amazing machines and we look forward to the next rally on 1st and 2nd August 2015!
