Just a little bit of advance warning for this year’s annual Chipping Steam Fair.The event will be held on the 24th ,25th and 26th May. The fair was first held in 1998 to raise money for a new Village Hall in Chipping and such was it’s success that it has been held nearly every year since. The event was cancelled in 2001 due to outbreaks of foot and mouth in the area and again in 2002 due to the weather. However in 2004 it moved to a new showground just outside the village of Chipping and since then it has continued to go from strength to strength and is now the very popular three day event.The vintage tractors and classic cars have become highlights of the show so much so that it is now one of the north west’s premier attractions. Well worth a visit.
We are open for bookings for this weekend and are only about 5 miles away from the showground.
