Chris Graham reports from the amazing Welland Steam & Country Rally that’s grown so large that many now refer to it as ‘Little Dorset’!
The Welland Steam & Country Rally (July 29th-31st) is organised by the Ross-on-Wye Steam Engine Society, and I have to say that it does an incredible job pulling this event together. It’s an immensely impressive rally and, thanks to the sheer breadth of the show, I can appreciate why more and more people now refer to it as ‘Little Dorset’, likening it to the Great Dorset Steam Fair.
The variety of attractions was incredible, and the organisers’ aim of creating a genuine ’working event’ was certainly achieved. I shall definitely be returning next year but, in the meantime, here’s just a few of the interesting machines I spotted during my visit.
