August Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday
26th ~ 27th August 2018
Special Attractions we had in 2017
The Portsmouth Action Field Gun Display Team
Performing a truly spectacular event called the South Africa Challenge, when a Command 1 tonne, 12-pounder field gun and limber (a two-wheeled cart designed to support the trail and the stock of a field carriage) will be raced across the main arena.
The South Africa Challenge will involve the teams racing each other to dis-assemble and re-assemble the Field Gun on the carriage and fire (a blank) at each end of the run.
The Trevithick Locomotive
In association with the Ironbridge Gorge Museum, the first railway locomotive in the world.
Designed by Richard Trevithick and built by the Coalbrookdale ironworks in 1802. It wasn’t a great success, but this, and Trevithick’s other engines, showed what could be done and inspired the engineers who made steam powered railways a practical proposition.
