BIT­TEN BY THE STEAM BUG

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - DAYS OUT -

Or­gan­iser Bill Giles was bit­ten by the steam bug as a child, when his fa­ther re­cov­ered a Bur­rell 2386 and re­stored her.

To­day, he stages the rally as a tes­ta­ment to the peo­ple who save the steam ma­chines from scrap and pre­serve them.

It is de­signed as a tra­di­tional gath­er­ing and ex­hi­bi­tion of steam, and is the largest gath­er­ing of its kind in Kent.
