We will have three Sawbenches working this year and two thrashers. There will also be Heavy Haulage and Engines working up the steep hill at the back of the site. In field 3 there will be two ploughing engines working throughout the weekend.
Showmans Road Run
Following fantastic interest from both the public and Engine owners we will once again be holding the road run to the original Brixham Fairground at Furzeham Green. The highlight will be Gladiator and Earl Kitchener double heading two ex fairground boxtrucks up apound the notorious Overgan hairpin bend, and the equally difficult ropewalk to the green. This year the run will be taking place on Saturday 2nd August, leaving the showground at approx 5pm and ascending the route from the harbour from 6pm approx.
