The Stafford County Showground is set in 70 acres of Staffordshire countryside, easily accessible and a five minute drive from junction 14 of the M6.
We spoke to one couple in the queue, Alan Tomlinson and wife Anne, who had made the 120-mile journey over from Leeds the night before and stayed at a local Lodge. What was he after? "I have a Tiger Cub, mostly restored now, and an A10 which is complete, and I'm just browsing the stalls for spares. Although I need a cyclinder head for the Cub, if the price is right, I'll pay for parts and put them into 'stock'. If they're not needed when I sell the bike or move on, I'll just sell them on. There's always a market." Anne doesn't ride bikes but is a willing pillion.
