Carnhell Green is a small Village South west from the town of Camborne, in the heart of the West Cornwall farming community. It still retains a great sense of community spirit. Each year they organise various events to raise money for local charities, one of these event is a Vintage rally. So on Saturday August the 8th I attended this years event Which was in aid of the Cornwall Air Ambulance, The Childrens Hospice South West (Precious Lives Appeal ), and Cornwall's Hospice Care (St Julias and Mt Edgcumbe ). There is something for everyone at this great family day out, from old Cars, Motorcycles, Tractors and farm Machinery, to Heavy Horses. A large selection of Stalls, Children's fun area, Fun Dog Show and Stationary Steam Engines, Also parades and events in the main Ring. So below is a selection of images of the 200 plus I took on the day, and a big thank you to the organisers and helpers who put on this great event in aid of such worthy causes.


  1. Nice set of images there Monts. The colour and exposure is excellent. That Beddy van brings back memories as well ! ;)

  2. I've just returned from my first trip to Cornwall; very impressive, I was just wildlife watching around the Penzance area but saw dozens of new species particularly the plants. On Friday I was sea watching off St Ives late morning/early afternoon. the only downer was not being able to get to the isles of scilly for the day as the boat wasn't taken day trippers to the isles until Saturday. Excellent blog, Cheers.
