Thousands of people enjoyed a fun-packed weekend of displays at the annual Chiltern Steam Rally at the weekend.

The popular festival, organised by the Chiltern Traction Engine Club kicked off in a field in Honor End Lane, Prestwood, on Saturday, July 6 and brought in thousands of enthusiasts during its two-day stint.

Visitors enjoyed demonstrations with timber sawing, stone crushing, 60 classic cars and 30 motorcycles and displays from stationary engines.

The weather held out as visitors marvelled at the magnificent vintage steam traction engines ranging from the 1900 to 1930s.

The main arena in the middle of the field provided entertainment throughout the day with various exciting displays.

The crowds cooled off from the sun at the bar and enjoyed rural craft, models and miniatures, a market and a steam-powered children’s fun fair.

As well as providing a great day out for those who had travelled from near and far, the event once again supported the Pepper Foundation, a registered charity which helps to fund the hospice at home children’s nursing team managed by Rennie Grove Hospice Care. The charity offers specialist palliative care and support to children and families.
