About this eventWe are delighted to be returning to Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre, this time for a day with a difference photographing road and agricultural steam against the period backdrop of this 36-acre open air site in West Sussex.
Amberley lies within the South Downs National Park and was established in 1978 in a former chalk quarry. The site was used to extract chalk and process it for lime and was in use from the 1840s until the 1960s; some of the original lime kilns are still in position. The Museum has a large collection of historic vehicles covering road and rail transport, many in working condition, and has constructed a number of historic buildings on site including a repair garage and bus depot; it is a pleasant site with many photographic possibilities.
Our day will primarily feature working road steam though donít be surprised if a few period additions from the Museum collection make an appearance during the day. We will run from approximately 09.30 until 17.00 with a break for lunch. We already have three steam rollers confirmed and are hoping for more, to be confirmed in the next couple of months. Some will be visiting the site for a short period.
Our previous visits to Amberley have been very worthwhile and enjoyable and we hope you will want to join us for a day of Summer steam photography.
