A great family day out

This is the most varied collection of steam engines and fairground rides in Britain, including a fully working Edwardian-era steam fairground, narrow gauge and miniature steam railways, as well as steam road engines, road rollers, and farm and other engines. The museum is run by unpaid volunteers who keep most of it in working order to entertain and educate you, as it would have done more than a century ago.
