The steam fair is a collection of vintage fairground attractions and rides, started by John Carter in 1977.
Although John sadly passed away in 2000, his family is still building the collection which has featured in many films, on television and in advertising campaigns.
Now in its 33rd season, the fair is still run today by members of the Carter family, who lovingly restore all the equipment. The swingboats were built in the early 1920s by Thomas of Chertsey, and were a novelty at the time as they had new plate jointed legs, rather than the traditional 'nutcracker' arrangements.
In 2009, Guiseppe Della Camera, who travels with Carters Steam Fair selling ices from his restored 1954 Morris J-type ice cream van, was offered ?100,000 for it by Sir Mick Jagger.
The fair's 2009 season has now ended and it has returned to its base for painting and the minor repairs, which are an ongoing part of managing the vintage equipment.


Anna Carter tells us the fair will be back in Surrey from Summer 2010, visiting Woking, Chobham, Hersham and Englefield Green.

It was part of the medieval moat that some historians claim is older still, perhaps having origins as part of an Iron Age earthwork. There is a small museum, cafe and gallery with exhibitions and events held throughout the year. The ride was added to the collection in 1976, and has been restored to its former glory by the family. This was to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee year and also marked the return of the ride to steam power after 25 years.
