steam rallies and events

Events in East England

The East of England was a major centre for the Royal Air Force and the US Air Force during the Second World War and there are museums reflecting this. However, a wide range of interests are covered, such as water pumping stations, gas works, traction engine builders and industrial railways.

The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions across the East of England region including Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and Huntingdonshire.
