Steam trailer rides for Julia’s House

THE Great Dorset Steam Fair, the world’s largest celebration of rural and heritage crafts, machinery and trades, runs this year from Thursday 24th to Monday 28th August at the showground at Tarrant Hinton.

The fair is famous for its support for many local charities, and this year, the charity steam engine-drawn trailer rides will be supporting the children’s charity Julia’s House.

It is a unique opportunity for visitors to experience up close, the might and power of the heavy haulage steam traction engines.

The rides will run regularly from 10am to 6pm each day, weather permitting.
