A Day with Dorothy
For those of you who would like to keep their feet on the ground, we are delighted to be able to offer this steam experience day for two. Your day will commence with oiling and steaming up Dorothy, our 1914 Clayton & Shuttleworth 5nhp Compound Engine. Then, following brunch in our 1900 C&S Living Van you will be able to enjoy an extended driving lesson designed to showcase the most exciting aspects of operating a 13 tonne behemoth, as well as fine tune your skills as a driver. You will then bring Dorothy back to the Collection, where you will have the opportunity to take part in belting up and running our C&S thrashing set. Your day will also include a private tour of the C&S Heritage Collection and concludes with a dinner that will have been slow-roasting in Dorothy’s smokebox throughout your experience day.
Please note: If bidding to purchase as a Christmas present - In order for a gift certificate detailing this lot to arrive with you in time for Christmas (UK mainland only), the winning bid must be paid for, and funds cleared, by noon, Monday 21st December, 2020.
As with operating any vintage machinery, there are few concessions to accessibility. All participants must be relatively fit and able to get onto and off of the steam engine unaided. All participants must be aged 21 years and over, hold a full UK driving licence and wear steel toe cap boots to take part in our A Day with Dorothy Experience.
