By 1982 the Grand Henham Steam Rally was already a well-established event in Suffolk’s calendar of attractions – bringing thousands of families to enjoy a great day out.
Next year the event will be celebrating its 46th year at Henham Park with steam engines, displays, stalls and a range of other activities to see and do.

Back in 1982 many of the themes for the event were already in place - with people enjoying a day in the countryside to get up close with engines and farm machinery of yesteryear and to enjoy seeing the power of steam in action.
As well as steam engines of all shapes and sizes, there was a chance to get hands-on too with more modern technology and try out some of the radio-controlled cars being marketed.
