The Sussex Steam Engine Club was founded in 1993 by a small group of enthusiasts who felt that while Sussex had a strong steam movement, it had no local club to consolidate their interests.
The Club hosts various events including Road Runs, a Steam Driving Experience, a Christmas meal/social evening and Winter meetings.
As a Club, our members support many local events including Wiston Steam Rally and Tinkers Park and the Steam Apprentice Club Driving Days.
The Club also gives support and guidance to members who run their own events.
Please look through our pages to find out more of who we are and what we do.
Membership costs just £10 per year. (+ £3.50 if a plastic membership card is required)

This is a very popular event held by the Claude Jessett Trust at Tinkers Park, Hadlow Down, East Sussex and raises a large amount of money for the Cancer Research Fund.
A Spring road run from Tinkers Park through the lanes to the Blackboys Inn. Supported by the Management of the pub, food will be available.
