The 42nd annual Henham Steam Rally returned to its home in Henham Park near Southwold, after last year being staged at Trinity Park in Ipswich.

An array of vintage vehicles, steam engines and tractors supported by stunt teams and country displays kept the people happy during the two-day event.

Graham Scriven, event manager, said: 'We're all very pleased to be back at Henham and everybody we've seen has said they're pleased it's back at Henham.

'There's been a great atmosphere.'

'We had an inch of rainfall on the Friday and we'd taken measures on the site to protect the park from bad weather,' he said.
