About the South Molton Vintage Rally
Just South of the River Yeo in the heart of North Devon between Molland and Bish Mill lies the site of the annually held, well attended, South Molton Vintage Rally. The Rally attracts visitors from near and far and always raises money for a great local cause.
The two-day events and spectacles center around the sizeable cordoned off arena, around which are many stalls and exhibits. Over the years, this local rally has attracted hundreds of attractions from the modest Penny Farthing Bicycle to the Giants of the Steam Traction World and is always well received by visitors.
Established on the eastern side of the historic market town of South Molton, this year’s Rally includes a full line-up of Steam Engines, Tractors, Motorcycles, Arena Events, Vintage and Veteran Vehicles, Lorries and Vans, Stationary Engines, Rural Skills demonstrations, plus a bit more.

Virginia, apologies but the organiser's website is no longer running -- their facebook page is still active so probably worth popping the question there too (we don't organise just list). Also this years date was TBC so I've removed it until they publish on their website or facebook page again. Sorry I can't help more.
