Industrial and Agricultural Sections
Industrial Trucks Section: Pete Merrett
These incredibly versatile machines could be found in many industries, from huge industrial complexes to market gardens. They were adapted to perform many functions from hauling heavy loads around factories to mobile cranes, even a fire engine!
One of the best known builders of industrial trucks was the famous firm of R A Lister of Dursley, Glos (now sadly closed), not many miles from the show site.
There will be around 60 examples of these wonderful machines for you to see at the show.
Plants and Machinery: John Stickland
Who can recall walking part a building or roadworks site years ago and seeing strange machines carrying out a multitude of tasks that helped to build or maintain Britain?
In this section you will see examples of machines, from concrete mixers to dumper trucks, that carried out mundane yet vital tasks in keeping things going.
Happiness – is a man driving his dumper!
