Morval Vintage Steam Rally
A working vintage steam rally with vintage tractors, cars, motorbikes, military vehicles, commercials and stationary engines, trade stands, craft tent, hot food, bar and children's entertainment. In the words of the organisers: “Firstly we aim to give our visitors, whether they are adults or children, an enjoyable day out at a modest price. Secondly we seek to raise funds for charity”.
Over the weekend locals and visitors flock to the showground near the tiny village of Morval deep in the Cornish countryside to enjoy the friendly atmosphere of this popular rally. Taking place over the August bank holiday weekend, the rally features lots of exhibits that illustrate the old fashioned power and craftsman design of vintage engines, cars and tractors.
