Kent County Show held at Detling Showground on 11th - 13th July 2014
I am finding that the Kent County Show is getting better & better as each year passes. The whole show is greatly pushing towards more of what is or has been going on in past / present & future of the Kent Area including superb local produce, local manufacturers and ofcourse Our local Heritage.
This is resulting in more of the vehicles that are being shown in the "Heritage Area" of the show are of Kent Origin or have worked in the area.
Here are some of the vehicles in this years Heritage section that caught my eye.
A superb Ford Truck, Airstream and Harley set up that I really liked and hadnt seen here before
