Skegness’ Village Church Farm Museum held its annual tractor and motor vehicle rally recently, welcoming back a much loved steam traction engine.

The engine called Bob started life in 1892 and was taken to Tazmania.

'Bob' the Richard Hornsby traction engine built at Spittlegate Iron Works Grantham. EMN-140723-180426001

From 1988, ‘Bob’ took residence in Skegness and after two years away due to building works it has now returned to the museum.

Mayor of Skegness Coun George Saxon opened the rally and the weekend raised hundreds of pounds for restoration at the museum.

The event returns on July 18 and 19 next year.
