St. Albans Steam and Country Show

he smell of steam and excitement of raw steam power which helped to get Britain's haulage and agriculture where it is today. Also a variety of trade stands to look around and some fairground rides, and a variety of vintage vehicles such as lorries, cars and tractors.

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.

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 of the new millennium we now live in.

Many 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.

Steam threshing was carried out at local farms, while steam tractors were used to carry stone, farm produce and even house contents within the area. Some of these machines are now 100 years old, but have been rebuilt many times and will last forever!
