About the Rally

That Was the Rally That Was !!

The 2022 Heddington & Stockley Steam Rally and Country Fair took place over the weekend of 2nd – 3rd July and was attended by unprecedented numbers of the public on our return after two years of enforced inactivity. It was a fantastic weekend despite an odd bit of “weather” from time to time and the Rally has been deemed an outstanding success.  We had an enormous number of vehicles on display, large steam engines, mini steam engines, vintage tractors, classic cars, land rovers, military vehicles including a Sherman tank, commercial vehicles and classic motor cycles, all of which paraded in the main arena as well as being readily available for closer inspection.  The SouthWest Area Tractor Pullers Association put on a fantastic series of shows watched by large crowds, and the British Lawn Mower Racing Association held their World Championship to delight many followers.

Our biggest ever Craft Tent saw plenty of footfall, especially during the odd shower of rain – more than 40 crafters displayed their wares and were happy to chat to guests and sell their goods.  With arena displays of falconry and Fiery Jack, a team of “Westerners”enacting various scenes from the Wild West, and vintage ploughing displays, there was plenty for everyone to see and do over the weekend, while Food Village vendors and the Beer Tent kept the crowds fed and watered.  The Fun Dog Show attracted large numbers of entries both days and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part.

Overall, then, a terrific success in the eyes of the organising committee with very many complimentary messages and countless happy smiling faces as guests left the event at the end of Saturday and Sunday.  We would like to thank everyone for coming along to our Rally in 2022 and also to express our sincere gratitude to all the volunteer helpers who gave their time freely without whom we would be unable to manage such a wonderful, successful event.

Our thoughts now turn toward the next Steam Rally – watch this space for future announcements in the fullness of time.  If you enjoyed your visit, please come again, but if you were unable to visit us this year, maybe next time……you’ll all be very welcome!!
