The International Steam Pages


Bressingham Museum 2017

This is one of a series of pages which I have uploaded to illustrate facets of steam rallies we have attended in the UK (since 2013). 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 overall 2017 index.


With a dull third day in prospect at Weeting, we changed our plans and visited Bressingham, mainly to see the gardens but the steam museum obviously grabbed my attention too. I haven't included the steam locomotives, stationary steam engines etc here. I suspect that road steam only sees occasional use, certainly there was an event here over the early May Bank Holiday weekend 2017. The only steam staff I saw were operating trains and there was no one to ask to remove the sheeting over the road engines. According to Barrie Woods 'Traction Engine Museum Guide' there are other engines here.
