The International Steam Pages


Chipping Steam Fair, (27th - 29th May 2017)

This is one of a series of pages I will be uploading to illustrate facets of steam rallies we have attended in our part of the UK. Such events occur all over the country in the summer months, they are easily found by using your favourite search engine and may have anything between a handful of steam engines and hundreds (as at the Great Dorset Steam Fair which could probably be fairly described as having an excess of riches). Click here for the 2017 index.

David Collidge's Steam Scenes website (http://www.steamscenes.org.uk/) is a fount of information and was a great help in compiling these pages.


I maintain a map which shows the locations of the steam rallies we have attended and North West England (ie Lancashire, Cumberland and Westmoreland) was blank until this weekend, simply because there are, to my knowledge, no major events there. It's all part of Yuehong's education and so we stayed in Blackburn - more education - to keep costs under control, the Ribble Valley on a bank holiday being anything but cheap. Chipping is a modest but well run fair in what is arguably the most beautiful setting in the country for such an event. Our visit was cut short by the advent of a heavy thunder storm although any more photography would have been difficult given that once in place, there was no sign that the engines would move further until their traditional visit to the local hostelry in the evening, which as it turned out would have been under a universally grey sky.

Steam Sawing

The Marshall was on a saw bench, as was Fowler 21647 but the latter was impossible to photograph meaningfully. .

Steam Bonus

On Sunday 28th May, we stumbled on an Aveling and Porter steam roller (7673/1912) en route from Tarleton to the following weekend's rally at Heskin. Richard and mate were very friendly. It was a shame that the light was dire.
