Crowds turn out for Morton steam fair

Have your say

MORE than 2,000 vintage enthusiasts both local and from further afield descended on Morton over the weekend to attend the seventh annual steam fair.

The festival, held over Saturday and Sunday at Dock Furrows Farm in Bourne Road, included ten miniature steam engines, two big engines, a range of vintage vehicles including 27 commercial lorries, 37 tractors and 74 cars all from before 1970.

The festival was an opportunity for like-minded enthusiasts to come together and show off their vintage vehicles.

Organiser Brian Lawrance said: “We are getting bigger every year.

“We had a good turn out on the Saturday up to 3pm when it tipped down and then we had an excellent attendance on the Sunday.”

Visitors also enjoyed a fun fair, craft stalls and refreshments as well as other entertainment.

The money raised from the event will go towards the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
