Power Of The Past Rally 2003
Once again this was an excellent working Rally with something for everyone. This year there was a number of "Living Vans" on show as well as the usual working displays of thrashing wood cutting etc with Steam. There was a nice selection of Stationary engines this year as well as a large number of working tractors and horticultural implements, all in all a really worthwhile Rally for the general public to attend.
