The first Whitwell Steam Fair was held in 1998, in the village of Whitwell from which it takes its name, before moving to a larger site owned by the Bowes Lyon family in nearby St. Paul’s Walden. Since 2008 it has been held in Mansell’s Farm in Codicote. The Steam Fair is held to raise funds for MacMillan Cancer Support and features working steam engines as well as classic cars, tractors, military vehicles & motorcycles.
