About this event

We are pleased to be returning to the Andover Steam Yard in 2022 for a run out into the Hampshire Countryside before setting up a road working scene as once seen up and down the land. We will start out day at the Yard at 11:00 photographing the engines being bought up to full steam before heading out on the lanes around Hampshire. About halfway through the day we will stop at a local pub for food and refreshements before heading out again for photography until 20:30 for a chance to get some nice evening light around the countryside.

The Andover yard is home to an extraordinary collection of steam road and portable engines (not to mention the occasional vintage tractor). Our day will see many various types of engine in steam. With the possibility of around three rollers in steam, plus two steam tractors and these will be joined by other unique treats from the private collection. In addition, we hope to have a small number of period cars and a vintage motorcycle to use in some cameo scenes.

Expect plenty of action around the yard, out on the lanes during the day and then at our final destination where we will be demonstrating rolling, stone crushing and laying farm lanes.  

This should provide a wealth of photographic opportunities and a great day out and we look forward to seeing you at the Andover Steam Yard in the spring!
