Event History

Market Lavington used to have its own factory, producing award winning steam engines, on the site of what is now the Scout Hall. However, Mr Cambridge the inventor of the eponymous clod breaking roller, needed more space and better communications so the factory was moved to Bristol.


Rallies used to be organised on The Elisha Field by Mr John Kyte for a number of years and many in the village still remember those days.  A group of organisers decided to resurrect the event in 2018 with the support of the Parish Council. Due to its success the event now takes place on the 2nd weekend of July each year.
