Boconnoc Steam Fair

Our first venture into Cornwall!

What started as a bit of a joke ended up with us exhibiting at the Boconnoc steam fair this year. We arrived in convoy with three cars, two caravans and the trailer and decided to make a bit of a holiday out of this one, arriving on site several days prior to the show opening and making the most of the local area and the warm weather.

By the time the show opened however, the weather had started to turn. Visitor numbers remained reasonable until the Sunday, when the heavens really opened. The diesel generator used to power the model tent and several other marquees ran out mid way through Sunday morning and the decision was taken by the organisers to preserve the fuel to use for tractors to help tow people off the site. This basically meant that we became a rather large diorama. So the decision was taken to finish early and pack down and by lunchtime, we were on our way back to sunny Dorset.

A very enjoyable weekend despite the weather!

With thanks to Mick French of the Boconnoc model tent.
