The WSRA Steam & Vintage Rally






The 2019 Rally was held on 3 and 4 August 2019 at Norton Fitzwarren. A glittering array of superb machinery was in action and we were proud to host some of the country's finest examples of vintage transport on display.

We have a tremendous team of volunteers who make the annual Rally a successful and enjoyable event for more than 6000 visitors and 2000 exhibitors each year.
