The Lancashire Traction Engine Club, which was founded in 1965, is now constituted as a company limited by guarantee and registered as a charity. The objects of the Club include advancing the education of the public by increasing and maintaining interest in historic steam and other mechanically propelled vehicles, other historic machinery and historic crafts and craftsmanship.
We welcome everyone with an interest in machinery preservation.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO OWN A STEAM ENGINE TO JOIN OUR CLUB.

Meetings are usually held on the first Sunday in each Month through the winter, at Flixton Conservative Club, Abbotsfield, Flixton Rd, Flixton M31 3DF.
These meetings commence at 8.00 p.m. and consist either of authoritative lectures on subjects of interest to preservationists or of "natter nights" where members can see slides and films, or simply sit and talk.
Occasionally we may hold our meetings at other venues and other days and times. Please watch out for news posted on this website, on facebook, or by email notification to keep up-to-date.
Some meetings will be open to non-members to attend too, for a small charge.
A regular Journal is published to keep members informed of Club activities, steam rallies and other subjects of interest.
