Heritage Steam Gala at Bressingham Steam & Gardens

Bressingham Steam & Gardens, which is about a mile from Inglewood House, holds a Heritage Steam Gala each Spring in which the resident Traction Engines & Road Rollers and standard & narrow gauge Railway Engines are joined by several visiting engines – one of which, this year, is from the Bala Lake Railway in North Wales.

Named ‘Winifred’, she was built by Hunslet of Leeds in 1885 for the Penrhyn Slate Quarry.

We are delighted to be hosting Winifred’s driver and his wife and were even more delighted to be able to visit them at the Museum today.

This evening there will be a cavalcade of Traction Engines into Diss, where the drivers and their ‘crew’ will enjoy a Fish & Chip supper – I hope the other road users aren’t in too much of a hurry!
