About the Clwyd Vintage Vehicle, Steam Rally and Craft Fair
One of Britain’s most rural and sparsely populated counties, Shropshire is home to some very famous natural landmarks: the Clee Hills, the Stiperstones, the Long Mynd, and Wenlock Edge. Shropshire is renowned as a geologist’s paradise and as the birthplace of industry, but it has clearly given the world so much more than that.
Shropshire is also home to the Oswestry Showgrounds, distinguished venue of the annual Clwyd Vintage Vehicle, Steam Rally, and Craft Fair, a fun day out for the entire family. With numerous sections showcasing various exhibits, you'll be pleased to find steam engines, vintage commercial vehicles, fire engines, buses and campervans, stationary engines, horses, vintage tractors, horticultural machinery, vintage caravans, vintage pedal cycles, and vintage motorcycles out on display.
Spectators will be able to see many of these classic, vintage, and veteran vehicles in motion in the Ring. Other attractions at the Oswestry Show include a model hall, a craft hall, as well as trade and autojumble stands.
The Oswestry Show is organised by the Clwyd Veteran and Vintage Machinery Society. Established in 1976, the society is run by volunteers with all money raised going back into the running of the club and the organisation of next year's show.

Other Things To Do Around Oswestry

Other attractions in and around Oswestry include: Cae Glas Park, Shelf Bank, Wilfred Owen Green, Saint Oswald's Well at Maserfield, Castle Bank, and the Cambrian Railway Museum located near the former railway station.
