Henham Steam Rally

Pleasant day out today, I visited Henham Steam Rally at Henham Park near Southwold. Had a nice drive out through the Suffolk countryside via Bungay and Halesworth. Lots to see here as usual at this Steam and Country show, there where Traction Engines and steam rollers, vintage and classic cars, classic tractors and farm machinery, classic trucks and military vehicles,vintage and classic motorbikes. Other items of note where a model engineering display comprising large scale steam engines, lorries, scale miniature beam and pumping engines, etc.
The event seems to get bigger every year, the various trade stalls, small displays, country craft and food outlets covered a larger area this year.
There where quite a few car dealers displaying new cars and used cars.
I enjoyed wandering around for a few hours watching the various displays, there where 3 or 4 show rings with various country style events and parades of the classic vehicles.
