 2015 saw a new attraction at the rally, some beautiful vintage and classic caravans made an appearance and created much interest with the visitors. 2016 The Committee of the Farm Machinery Preservation Society have unexpectedly made a decision to not include Historic Caravans into the Long Melford Rally.

2016 Rally News 
This long established rally (33 years) attracts visitors and exhibitors from all over East Anglia as well as quite a number travelling from all around the UK. 
Historic Caravans no longer to be exhibited at the rally
The Committee of the FMPS have decided against inviting owners of Historic Caravans to the rally in 2016.
2015 was the first year they had been included and because the numbers were not as hoped they are not to be given the opportunity to grow as an exhibit. This is a real disappointment for many people, not least Candy Sheridan, who undertook to liaise with Historic Caravan owners and handle their entries. If you wish to comment on this subject please email   

Special Event at the Rally for 2016 
We are hoping to bring you a cavalcade of vintage buses and coaches to stir your memory of how we once travelled.
Peter Leeder has kindly offered to organise the "Rally within the Rally" and no doubt this will create a great deal of interest.
If you own a vintage bus or coach please bring it along.
Entry forms can be downloaded on the "Exhibitors Information" page.

Rally entry forms for all exhibits are available now to download,

The Gypsy Caravans are popular with the public and some travel considerable distances to attend the rally.

A very rare Sentinel Steam Wagon 

Vintage and Classic cars are always well represented and this Alvis is among the finest.
Classic vehicles come in all shapes and sizes and this coach is typical of the standard of exhibits at the Melford Rally.
