About the Heskin Steam Rally

Think of a line from Liverpool to Manchester as the left and right points of a large triangle. Then, imagine a line heading northeast about 23 miles from Liverpool and another line heading northwest about 30 miles from Manchester. Where those two lines meet to form the third point of our imaginary triangle is Malt Kiln Farm, off Tincklers Lane and the site of the annual Heskin Steam Rally.

Now that our little trigonometry lesson is over let’s talk about the Heskin Steam Rally. The two-day weekend show will feature steam engines, saw bench demonstrations, stationary engines, vintage cars, motorcycles, and all the other exhibits commonly seen at steam rallies.

Take your kids and let your 'inner kid' emerge for a ride on a steam railway. Admire the vintage commercial vehicles and the many displays of tractors and machinery made before the days of robotics and programmable CNC machines. There will be music and live entertainment all weekend, and your kids can play in the 'bouncy house' while you return to your adult state and enjoy a drink at the licenced bar.

Heskin Steam Rally

The Heskin Steam Rally has been an annual two-day event for over 25 years. The event was moved to Malt Kiln Farm in 2016 and is organized by Jack Gerrard.

Entry To The Rally

The event will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, and proceeds from the weekend will go to a deserving local charity like the Legacy Rainbow House, which helps children with brain injuries, disabilities, and life-limiting conditions. Exhibitors and vendors are urged to contact Jack Gerrard or John Sandham or simply use the online form to address any concerns. A family ticket for 2 adults and their children is only £15, adults alone are £7, and for a mere £5, OAP’s and children can get in.

Somewhere to Stay in Lancashire

If you are planning to stay for a night or two, there are plenty of accommodations from an inexpensive 'no-frills' hotel to a luxurious B&B. One place nearby is The Farmers Arms in Chorley, a lively country inn from the 1700s offering relaxed decor, free English breakfast, and a casual bar. Another great choice is Parr Hall Farm, a quaint B&B in an 18th-century village farmhouse and barn with private bathrooms in each suite. If you are a camper check out the Longfold Farm Campsite about 5 miles from Malt Kiln Farm.

Getting To Malt Kiln Farm

Folks driving in from Liverpool will get on the M58 and travel about 10 miles northeast to exit 3 and make a left onto Lyelake Lane / B5240. Keep heading northwest to the town of Mawdesley and continue to Blue Stone Lane, and then take a left turn onto Tincklers Lane leading to Malt Kiln Farm. From Manchester take the M61 to exit 8 and head west on A674. Follow B5252, then A581. Note that at Wigam Road there is a short 'dogleg' to get to the B5250. The final turn is a right onto Tincklers Lane.

Other Things To Do Around Eccleston

Are you curious to see a historical landmark that predates the steam engine? Visit Astley Hall in Chorley. It is one of Lancashire's most historic halls that dates to Elizabethan times. William Shakespeare and Oliver Cromwell are some of the famous guests to stay at the hall. You can also learn about the early days of the Beatles by visiting historical Liverpool.
