1918 Le Rhone Rotary engine detail

The Countess of Warwick’s Country Show was held in Little Easton over the bank holiday weekend. After the ridiculously early start on the bank holiday Monday I had plenty of time to wander up to see what was going on. The place was absolutely packed with the large car park almost full when I arrived around an hour after its official start.

I had seen on the internet that a 1918 Le Rhone Rotary engine engine was going to be run which sounded interesting. Since its restoration the engine has been used in a Sopwith Dove.

It took some getting going!
