Ride out to Henham Steam Fair

Took a ride out in the TR7 to Henham Steam Fair today, Gill hates steam events so went on my own, was a nice sunny day, perfect roof down weather, so gave it plenty of stick over some good Norfolk and Suffolk roads.
Henham is not far from Southwold on the Suffolk coast.
It is always an interesting show with lots to do, lots of Traction Engines, Trucks, vintage tractors, vintage motor bikes and cars to see. Showing a car here is by invitation only and even though we had enquired we did not get an invite so I had to pay public prices.
Liked this Mk1 saloon in grey and blue.

Showmans Engine busy generating power for fairground rides.

Vintage Dennis Ulster fire engine, and Bedford trucks.

This brought back memories, my first job in East Anglia 20 years ago was
for Marshalls of Cambridge building demountable military containers
similar to the one on the back of this Bedford Army Flatbed .

Fordson Tractors, during the 2nd World War hundreds of these where
imported into East Anglia from the US to speed up food production.
Steam Powered Galloper.

Threshing demonstration.
1938 Aston Martin sportscar.
Henham Park is only 25 miles from home, but ended up doing about 75 miles, I took a few detours on the way home through Sibton, Laxfield, Cratfield, finding some lovely lanes to cruise over, maybe an idea for a run next year.

Even found some hills in Suffolk.

Typical quiet Suffolk lane.
