Welcome to The Cumbria Steam Gathering Online

Welcome to the website for the Cumbria Steam Gathering which takes place annually over the last weekend in July. Our home since 1986 has been Cark Airfield, Flookburgh, Grange over Sands, Cumbria LA11 7LS by kind permission of Mr J Latham and Sons. 

Having had the best of weather during build up week it was particularly disappointing to have the weather break on the very weekend of the Steam Gathering. Although we were able to run most of our intended programme despite the wind and occasional rain on Saturday, the persistent rain on Sunday morning ruled out most of the activities that should have taken place. Improving conditions from around lunchtime meant that we were able to run some parades and conduct the presentation of awards in the main arena. The Kangaroo Kid put on his quad bike display and the windy conditions proved ideal for Smile Factor 10 to show off their spectacular flying creations (it would be almost insulting to refer to them as kites!)

Many thanks to all those who visited us over the weekend in spite of the weather, to the exhibitors and traders who stuck it out and especially thanks to all our voluntary helpers without whom the show could not go on.

Heres hoping for better things in 2019.
