Carters traveling Steam Fair when they visited Maldon for a week at Promenade Park May 2014. It was a delight when they each year they have returned to delight the citizens of Maldon so I could never resist taking my camera along. In 2020 they have not returned due to Corvid-19 I hope they will return again.
Steam Gallopers one of the many vintage rides operated by Carters every piece of equipment is a sheer delight to look at.
The beautiful steam engine that drives the ride.
The beautifully decorated Children's roundabout many of the vehicles are children's peddle cars from the nineteen fifties.
Fine examples of Showman's art on this hand operated roundabout.
Steam Yachts built by Savages of Kings Lynn in 1921 this is the only traveling example of this type of ride, only one other exists.
Smoke steam and excitement

Two other gorgeous looking rides with beautiful hand painted fairground art.
Showman's tractors restored and painted to perfection, these are used to haul the rides to the next site and have generators on the back to power the lights and rides driven by electric power. Scammell, Atkinson, ERF, and Fodens were once the most popular heavy haulage vehicles on British roads and exported all over the world.
