Essex Country Show 2003

Barlylands Farm Museum Billericay Essex

A great Rally as usual with brilliant weather. There really was something for everyone here. There were 127 engines booked in with a wide variety.

There was a lot to see, more than a day is required if you want to see everything. A huge number of working displays including Steam ploughing and road making.

I have tried not to duplicate engine pictures but as the season goes on, it is getting more and more difficult.
