Did you play on Pudsey Park Steamroller? Can you help restore it?


If you’re of a certain age, you probably spent hours playing on Pudsey Park’s much-loved Steamroller, throwing yourself down the coal chute and clambering over its huge wheels.

The Steamroller, which actually dates back to the 1920s, was a popular attraction for generations of children between 1959 and 1990 before it was removed after falling into neglect.

The Friends of Pudsey Roller Group is an organisation dedicated to raising money to assist in the restoration of the Fowler steam roller that stood in Pudsey Park from 1959 to 1990 and was played on by numerous generations of children from the local area.

According to the YEP, the group has recently received a £10,000 donation, which is welcome news – but the group needs more.


To make a donation, to sponsor or to join the Friends group, contact Derek Rayner on 01904 781519 or email derek@invicta1915.freeserve.co.uk. You can also go to their website.
