The Crowland Buffalo will be shown to the public for the first time in June next year

The Crowland Buffalo will be on display to the public next year at an event to mark the 75th anniversary of the floods that left the village of Crowland, Lincolnshire an island and cut off from the rest of the UK. This was confirmed by Daniel Abbott, chairman of the Crowland Buffalo LVT Association (CBLA) who said that to commemorate the floods, a Crowland 1940s Weekend is being planned for June 25 and 26, 2022.

“The main attraction will be Buffalo 47 but she will be joined by lots of other things – vintage vehicle, re-enactors, trade stands and a marquee dance on the Saturday night,” said Daniel. “The event is still in the initial planning stages, but we will keep you updated as things develop.”

Before this, the Buffalo will be on display at an event held at Park Farm in Thorney, Cambridgeshire. “Michael Sly, who bought the new engine from the US is holding a do on June 11 and 12, 2022 and it will be on display there with all the equipment we used to dig it out and recover it,” said Daniel, who added they hope to have the Buffalo “up and running by that stage”.
