SOAKING up the sun at the St Albans Steam and Country Show was enjoyed by thousands of visitors last weekend.
The 43rd annual rally of the Hertfordshire Steam Engine Preservation Society (HSEPS) attracted over 300 steam engines, farm tractors, classic cars and other vintage vehicles to the Oaklands College site for the two-day event.
Vehicles from across the country, some more than 100-years-old, were proudly presented by their owners at the event, which was held at the Smallford campus on the edge of St Albans for the first time in the society's history.
As well as seeing the vintage vehicles, visitors also enjoyed miniature locomotive steam rides, a trade fair, an old time fairground, and demonstrations of steam-run equipment such as a rack saw bench at work.
