Important information: Cancelled 2016 rally
It is with great regret to announce that this year’s Chiltern Traction Engine Club’s rally is to be cancelled.
After a long discussions between the Committee and Land Owners, it was felt that the risk was too high due to the site being totally saturated with all of the rain we have had here in the Chilterns over the past few months.
The tough decision was made as a result of the last cancelled rally four years ago when the site was wrecked when vehicles and engines had to be recovered and this took many months for nature and contractors to repair it back to grazing land.
Please can we ask that you share this message to other user-groups, people who don’t have access to the internet or to people and exhibitors you know was planning to attend this year’s rally.
We would like to apologise again for this inconvenience and thank you all for your support and look forward to see you again at next year’s rally on the 1st & 2nd July 2017.
The Chiltern Traction Engine Club was founded in 1961, to bring people
together interested in preservation of historic vehicles and many more.
The club and rally has grown over the years and we offer a wide range of exhibits and displays to entertain the whole family.
The club hold their rally every year at Prestwood in Buckinghamshire, on the 1st full weekend in July. We put on an fun packed weekend, displaying 260 exhibits and entertainment for all ages.
The rally is spread out over 3 fields. This includes market stalls, craft stands, fun fair, food stands, working area, traction engines, commercials vehicles, tractors, motorbikes, cars, stationary engines, models and miniatures and many more.
On both days there is a chance to see impressive steam engines and motor vehicles moving under their own power during the main arena events between 10am and 3pm.
During the main arena event, the club offers a unique and rare opportunity to allow members of the public to have a go at steering a full size traction engine around the main arena.
Please see the rally page for more details
We always welcome new members to our club.
If you have an interest in preservation, come along to our club nights or help out at the rally.
Any knowledge, experience and assistance towards the club, will help us grow and would be very much appreciated, so come along.
At our club nights we meet at 8pm on the first friday of every month. We organise a variety of talks or film shows, on all subjects and interests. To find out what is coming up, please look in the Club news and Events section.
