Hundreds of exhibitors, food stalls and attractions kept Lancashire families entertained across three days at the annual Chipping Steam Fair. Held on the Green Lane showground in Chipping, the popular event is run by volunteers, with all proceeds raised going toward good causes and local charities.
As well as the many fantastic steam engines, classic cars, bikes, vintage tractors and commercial and military vehicles on display, popular attractions also included the beer tent, which featured live music until late across the weekend, a steam engine evening procession through the village and arena entertainment such as sheep dog and duck herding.
