The only comprehensive guide to Britain's transport and industrial heritage
For the last two weekends of July only, Hollycombe Steam Museum is welcoming the first ever appearance at the museum of James Messham’s fabulous Wall of Death ride, where, for a small extra charge, visitors can watch motorcyclists perform death defying feats as they ride around the vertical walls. Definitely something not to be missed!
Adding to the extra attractions at Hollycombe’s Fairground weekend (23-24 July only) is Tom Mayhew’s Motorcycle Speedway Ark ride, again making its first appearance at Hollycombe. A supporting cast of juvenile rides, fairground organs and living vans and showmen’s vehicles add even more to the resident Edwardian fairground and steam railways, etc. at this popular venue, a mile south-east of Liphook, which also celebrates its 40th birthday over the last weekend in July.
Hollycombe will be open between 11am and 5pm (trains from noon and the fair from 1pm) each weekend, and then daily from 2nd-29th August (not Mons or Sats). For more, visit www. Hollycombe.co.uk
