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. 

The weather wasn`t ideal, heavy rain at times during build up week meant that some of the planned activities at the 2017 Steam Gathering had to be modified somewhat, but due to the good nature of exhibitors, visitors and traders most of the show went ahead as planned. BROKE FMX amazed the crowd with their spectacular mid air antics and most of the vehicle parades took place in the arena. To spice things up a little there was an additional, unintended, spectacle of a demonstration of heavy recovery when two steam engines had to be rescued from the soft ground. We had the usual mix of superbly restored vehicles on show and in the collections exhibition, the championship wnning Suzukis ridden by the late Barry Sheene attacted much attention.

To everyone who attended the 2017 Steam Gathering, visitors, exhibitors, traders and particularly our loyal band of voluntary helpers, a very big thank you.
