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)
The events section is being regularly updated.
Various items of merchandise are available to purchase directly from our suppliers.
We are also currently looking in to other ideas.
