Saddles & Steam: Horse Power to Horse Power

Saturday 17 August to Sunday 18 August 2019
10.30am - 5pm

Celebrating every mode of transport from our four legged friends to the invention of the combustion engine, this two day Summer hit will be packed with horse displays, an army of steam engines, World War vehicles and classic cars to name just a few; not to mention lots of family fun with miniature steam engines, model boats and a crammed full arena display.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram (@wealddownmuseum) to stay in touch.
