The 2022 Cotswolds gathering organised by Mark Drake took place at the beginning of August. As usual the tour was based at Robin Woodcocks farm in Chipping Norton. Eleven cars took part and visits were made to Kiftsgate Court Gardens, Broadway Tower, the Classic Motor Hub, Hook Norton Brewery, and the Great Western Arms Pub at Aynho.
Below is a selection of photos from the tour.


The tour was organised by David and Diana Goddard and based at Mellington Hall Hotel, Montgomeryshire in the first week of July. Nine cars took part and about 30 people attended. We spent four days touring the countryside visiting some lovely villages and market towns and seeing some stunning scenery on the way. Below is a selection of photos from the tour.

The Steam Car Club Register
We have now updated our Register of steam powered vehicles, we have (hopefully) made the listings easier to locate and updated the details and images we have of many of the vehicles. Take a look and tell us what you think. If you know any vehicle that is not on the list - or can help with extra details on a vehicle that is we'd love to hear from you on info@steamcar.net.
Many thanks to George Hounslow for his hard work in compiling the new register.

1900 document about Locomobile End 2 End journey - A very interesting document has been sent to us by Dudley Westgate, who is Chairman of the End 2 End Club and Director of Heritage Attractons Ltd. The document is a handwritten diary entry by Hubert W Egerton of Norwich, who drove a Locomobile from John O'Groats to Land's End on 11 December 1900. Below the diary entry is a poem written by Mr Egerton's companion on the journey, Mr T Perkins. Click HERE to see the document. Our thanks to Dudley for sharing this with us.

We now have a further document about this journey! An article was published in the March 1954 edition of Model Engineer (which in those days sold for the princely sum of 9d) To read the full account please Click HERE

Welcome to the website - we hope you notice a few changes and improvements.

Firstly the site now needs a couple of requirements from your browser/computer. No need to panic though as it probably has them setup from the previous site to view some of the slideshows. The new site relies on this on every page.

1. The menu/navigation on the left needs Flash to run. If you do not have it you can download and install it from Adobe within a couple of minutes. You'll be asked to download it if you do not have Flash, or if your version of Flash is an older variant.
2. Javascript needs to be enabled, this can be turned on (or off) in your browser settings. The majority of settings have Javascript defaulted as 'on.'

And that's it. Enjoy the site and we look forward to your feedback.

The Steam Car Club of Great Britain would like to inform members.....

* A DVD is being produced called "Insight into Steam Cars" this will be available soon. It is hoped that this will be made in conjunction with the NTET we already have the support of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs. It is primarily to introduce people of all ages to steam cars to include the basic principles of how they run and importantly the safe operation with regards to maintenance and driving of Steam Cars.

* A list of Boiler Inspectors will be posted on this web site soon.

* The committee have decided to give Honorary Membership to those members around the world who have given years of service to the Steam Car Movement. The first person to be given this award will be announced shortly
