The Cromford Steam Rally or Fair as its sometimes referred to is held near the Derbyshire village of Cromford, in August each year, since 1970 when the first informal gathering took place.

HistoryEdit

On the first weekend in August 1970, a small group of enthusiasts gathered in the village of Cromford in Derbyshire with Steam engines, which they had restored and preserved. They had no idea that their gathering would grow into an annual event that was to become one of the biggest in the North Midlands.

Within a few years of that modest start, the gathering grew into a much larger celebration of a bygone age. As well as the original steam engines, which were the main attraction, other collectors of old cars and lorries joined in, along with some tractor enthusiasts with some older farming machinery. Over the next few years the rally also added models and miniature steam engines as well as stationary engines, rural crafts.

As the rally grew the local charities benefited from the growing visitor numbers. The rally is organised by volunteers, and a few years ago had to move from the site at Cromford to a new site a few miles away with more space for exhibits and parking.
