The event will be a real blast from the past - giving visitors the rare opportunity to see a collection of historic steam-driving machines that were once used for ploughing, threshing and harvesting - and were cutting edge technology in their day.

Stotfold Watermill and Nature Reserve states: “Treat yourself to a fantastic steam ride around Stotfold aboard Martha a 1932 Sentinel Steam Bus, that will be making regular trips all weekend.”

There will also be a sheepdog demonstration, 'Lamb National', Landrover stunt team and more, including live music, and a bar with traditional ales and ciders.
