On Sunday 21st September a friend and I went to Henham Steam Fair at Henham Park, Suffolk. This is usually the last show of the year that I attend, this time as a paying customer.
Quite a big show with plenty to see and loads of tat to look around. We started of at the Vintage cars as Richard had a couple of friends with old cars, he was hoping to see some Austin A70's, maybe a Hereford or Hampshire as he will be shortly taking delivery of a project A70, but no such luck, nearest was an A50.
Next up was tractors, hundreds of them of all shapes and sizes and plenty of Lend /Lease stuff from WW2 when the USA sent thousands of tractors over for the war effort. Richard, from an agricultaral background knew a fai bit about these too.

Later in the day we had a look around all the auto jumbles, again on the lookout for Austin A70 stuff, then it was the commercials and military vehicles before spending a bit of time in the Classic Car section talking to friends before heading home.
|Nice Pickford's collection.|
|Even somewhere to sleep.|
That's it for shows this year, we have a couple of drive outs for pub lunches planned for some winter Sundays in 2014. Hope spring comes round soon.
