The first Much Marcle Steam Rally was held  on the 19th & 20th July 1986.  The
Herefordshire Traction Engine & Vintage Club was formed.

The current site became available when the Ross on Wye Steam Engine Society moved
to the Upton on Severn area and a decision was then made to form the Herefordshire
Traction Engine & Vintage Club.

There are members in the club who have been with us since 1986, Tom Walker and
Richard Hesbrook being two of them.  They have seen many changes over the last
27 years, the first rally programme consisting of 10 pages and costing 30p.
The 2008 programme consisted of 54 pages and costed £1.

Over the last 25 years the rally has grown tremendously and we have a wonderful
number of exhibitors and supporters who look to come back year after year.
Which is testament to the hard work put in by the
committee and members over the years.
