Working Steam Weekend
5th Oct 2019 - 6th Oct 2019
A rare opportunity to see a unique collection of steam-driven machines for ploughing, threshing and harvesting that revolutionised farming. These faster, more efficient methods meant that bread, which was the staple of life for most of the population, was more affordable. Watch the threshed grain being ground into Stotfold Mill’s quality stone-ground flour as it has been for centuries.
This year Oliver Landpower are joining us, they have an heritage in agricultural machinery going back over 180 years. Look out for historic exhibits originally supplied by Oliver’s as well as the most recent equipment.
See the agricultural and other equipment and discover the selection of food outlets and traders.
High quality food that will be available over the weekend includes...
» Randall’s Tea Room:
