Just 50 minutes drive away from the cottage is Hay on Wye. We went on Sunday to the Steam Fair that is held on the outskirts of the town . There were numerous old and vintage cars and motor bikes on display along with lorries, buses, tractors and of course steam engines.
It’s the whole atmosphere that is so exciting…all the different vehicles, their sounds and smells and seeing and hearing the traction engines at work. In one field there were two traction engines helping to till the soil by pulling a plough between them and in a different area a traction engine rigged up to power a saw which was cutting through a whole tree trunk.
An amazing aerial show was the highlight of the afternoon session with brilliant acrobatics … wonderful loops, ups and downs and upside downs…..fantastic!
