Welcome to Fens Vintage Image Montage

Our policy is to feature events we visit as exhibitors and occasionally as visitors, and report independently in words and pictures. We do not organise events ourselves, and do not endorse, feature or advertise shows that we do not attend. Our 2015 calendar is very similar to 2014 but with a couple of changes. Parson Drove Car & Bike Show will replace Whaplode Drove, and Ramsey Steam Rally in place of Hilgay Country Show. Other events will also include the East of England Vintage & Heritage Spectacular in April and Rackheath Vintage Fayre in May.

Pensthorpe Vintage Rally The 3rd Pensthorpe Vintage Fair has unfortunately turned out to be the last, as despite entry forms for 2015 being handed out at the close of the 2014 show, Pensthorpe Natural Park have since removed the event from their programme for 2015 and it's unlikely to be reinstated in future years.

This invitation-only event always tries to put on something new and in 2014, that was a muck-spreading display, perhaps not everyone's cup of tea and certainly not one to be inspected at close quarters, but innovative all the same. In the other field, standing corn had been left to ripen for the usual harvesting display and a few ploughing plots had been marked out for those who wanted to present ploughing to match standards without it being obliterated within minutes. The muck-spreading display was headed up by the...  More/Images > > >

Haddenham Steam Rally Our visit to the 41st Haddenham Steam Rally seemed a little different to the year before when all the stops had been pulled out for the 40th anniversary year, although to be fair not a lot had changed. The layout remained pretty much the same with just a few tweaks, but the associated Heavy Horse Show on the Sunday was definitely lacking in participants with only a handful of horses at the most in each class. The vintage roadmaking display down the southern side of the site, however, goes from strength to strength. Cars and commercials seemed a little thinner on the ground this year, but they may be because most of the WDHVC caravan section had decided not to participate. This was a pity, because although they do...  More/Images > > >
