Leiston Town

Leiston Town is a showman's conversion, now used to generate electricity for the juvenile rides.

Came here as a child with my grandmother over 25 years ago. Now here with my daughter!

Taylor family, Chichester

Leiston Town is located in the Bioscope where she generates electricity for the juvenile rides. The engine is a Garrett type 4CD tractor, No. 33348 of 1918.

She was used by the famous Belfast shipbuilders Harkness for hauling ships from basin to basin before being brought to Hollycombe in 1966 in a derelict state. She was soon restored, being given a dynamo and showman's fittings.
