Henham Steam Rally 2002

Henham, Suffolk.

Back to the usual site this year, and if anything the Rally seemed bigger than ever.

A large array of Steamers, Military vehicles, Cars and Motorbikes were present, and this year there was a very good turn of of Stationary engines, including a seperate pen for large engines.

The weather stayed dry and sunny although the wind was strong on Sunday.

This is a good Rally for all the family with plenty to see and do, and even a few "cag" stalls. I bought an original Champion plug cleaner/tester, the sort that every garage used to have. It seems to work, and I intend to restore it to original condition and colour over the winter.


The pumpset happily ran all weekend with no problems.

Rob Vince had his Fairbanks out again with the Argosy pump.

Here is John Southall behind his Lister Generator set, note the rad for this year.

David Cragie with his superb Lister generating set, David is from Oadby.

Here is Norman Wasteney's 1920 6hp Bamford driving a corn mill just as it could have done all its life.

A 1945 Bamford EV3 3hp owned by M Frost from Needham Market.

A 1915 Economy Model E owned by D Culley of Wroxham.

An air cooled Amanco "Busy Boy" owned by G Hawley from Loughborough.

A 1918 Hornsby "Portable" 8hp Hot Bulb engine. A superb restoration owned by S Last of Saxted.

I took a picture of this, as I thought it was a typical "free show entry" as it sat unattended most of the weekend. It was actually started and run for a short period of time on Sunday afternoon. It was in the program as a 1920 italian engine" !!!!!!

An unusual 1919 Fench Japy, a no ES 4hp owned by James Green (aged 9) from Wheatacre Norfolk.

As the sign says, a 6hp Lion from around 1920 owned by Mr M Whatling from Glenham.

There were a lot of Listers this year, this was a particularly nice 1937 CS diesel owned by M Hamer of Stowmarket.

A nice 1929 5 hp Petter M petrol paraffin model owned by K savage from Becles.

A big Hornsby 16hp 1912 Mill engine. Owned by the late Len Murrey, now owned by Mr Talbot from Hempnall. 

This is another superb restoration of a 1927 Ruston and Hornsby IP 10.5 hp driving ........

An equally well restored Lister H7 pump.
