St Albans Steam and Country Show

St Albans Steam and Country Show

A full day's entertainment will be available for everyone. In addition to the old engines and farm equipment there will be stalls, a fairground and refreshments including a licensed bar. Demonstrations will be set up to show how the old equipment was used in days gone by. A working sawbench, threshing machine, stone crusher and other machinery will be at work. Ring events and parades will enable all the mobile exhibits to be moved on the field (if weather conditions allow).

For youngsters these steaming monsters provide both entertainment and education, a total contrast with the high-tec era of the new millennium we now live in. However, many of the older generation will remember steam rollers at work, while before the last world war steam wagons regularly pounded through St. Albans carrying long distance loads. Steam threshing was carried out at local farms, while steam tractors were used to carry stone, farm produce and even house contents within the area. Some of these machines are now 100 years old, but have been rebuilt many times and will last forever!
