There's nothing better then seeing vintage tractors and machinery doing what they were intended for.  At the West Oxon Steam & Vintage Show that's what we do best. The working arena has most things from thrashing to log sawing we like to try and show how things were done back in the good old days. Throughout the day there is always something going on. We like to keep busy so when you're on the rally field make sure you come and see us.

Sadly we lose great people every year but this year we lost a true gent of the rally scene Mr Eddie Tyrell, Anyone who knew Eddie knew what a lovely man he really was always loved to have a good chat and would always help where ever he could, He will be sadly missed. So this year the committee decided to have a memorial cup in the Working arena were Eddie use to love to be with his Ferguson tractor and saw bench. This will be an annual event in memory of Eddie.
