Burnham Steam & Historic Machinery Club

Hello! Just a few quick words about the aims of the club. It is a club for everyone, male or female, from the ages 9 to 90. We collect and display anything ‘Olde Worlde’ machine-wise; we have steam engines, to sewing machines.

We hold evening meetings on the third Thursday of each month. From time to time, we also have social evenings and events, indoors and out, and coach trips to interesting places for all the family. So come and join us and bring your hobby to us all. We will be glad to see and talk to you. We are all friendly members and will make you very welcome.
