35th Hunton Steam Gathering

Hunton Steam Gathering

There’s going to be great excitement at Hunton in lower Wensleydale this weekend, 10 and 11 September, where the 35th Hunton Steam Gathering will be happening. If you’re here then do try and go, there seems to be all sorts going on over the two days. Held just to the east of Hunton on nearby farmland having grown too big after ten years to be held behind the pub in the village. Run by a team of volunteers the gathering has raised and donated thousands of pounds for the village and local charities over its thirty five year history.

Hunton is a lovely village, six miles north west of Bedale, with trees and a central green now with play areas, a pretty stream and bridge. New houses and old mingle very nicely, there is a village shop with post office and no visit to Hunton should be without a visit to the Countryman pub where you’ll find a warm welcome. Park your car and have a wander. According to Wikipedia the name of the village derives from Old English and means the town of the huntsmen, or where the hunts hounds were kept. Also from Wikipedia, intriguingly, to the north of Hunton is site of a medieval village that it is believed to have been left ruinous either because of raids by Scots or because of the Black Death.
