:: [ Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show - Ardingly, Sussex - July 2009 ] ::

The Ardingly Show is not one that is noted in the SVVS calendar but is a Show that is attended by a number of our Members including our regular visitor Tony Oakes who again  provided the photos. Please click on any thumbnail picture below to see the full size picture. To return to the thumbnails please click the Explorer "Back" arrow (top left of screen).

Our Local steam show, the Lingfield Steam Fair, seems to have stopped showing full-size Traction Engines, and now only seems to have models. This is rather a shame and it is therefore pleasant to note that The Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show continues to have them. There is nothing quite so magnificent as a steam powered traction engine under full speed across the field !  We note that the proprietor of the above engine was a Mr. Oakes and we wonder if our snapper Mr. Oakes is in any way connected. The Ardingly Show is jointly organised by the Horsham Historics and the Morris Register and has many classes of vehicles including steam traction engines, veteran, vintage and classic cars, caravans, motorcycles, fire engines, commercials, tractors and machinery. As well as direct entries in main enclosures there are many separate car club stands.
