Keep your eyes peeled this weekend.

An historic steam wagon will be taking centre stage at the Honiton on the Hill Steam Rally.

The Foden HH Steam wagon, built in 1929, is one of only three in existence and runs on coal and water.

Visitors can catch a glimpse of it on August 26.

It can travel an average speed of approximately 18mph.

The wagon, which can travel at an average speed of 18mph, was restored in 1994 and is owned by removals company Bishop’s Move.

It will also be traveling from Honiton to Bladford Forum in Dorset on August 28 as well as taking part in the Great Dorset Steam Fair on August 29 to September 3.

Anyone who spots this most historic removal vehicle is encouraged to take a picture and upload it to the Bishop’s Move Facebook page.

Five lucky winners of the ‘Spot the Steamer’ competition will each receive a limited edition model Corgi Vintage Glory of Steam Foden with Liftvan.
