Cadeby Light Railway[edit]

Until 2005, Cadeby Rectory garden was home to the Cadeby Light Railway. This was a short narrow gauge line and collection of railway artifacts belonging to the late Rev. Teddy Boston, a friend of the Rev W Awdry. The railway is closed and was dismantled in 2006.

Cadeby Steam & Country Fayre[edit]

Market Bosworth Steam Rally, also known as the Cadeby Steam & Country Fayre, was founded in 1964 by the Rev Teddy Boston,[2] both as an alternative to transporting his steam roller to distant rallies by low-loader, and as a means to raise funds for his parish church. The rally continued annually for 44 years, held on the second weekend in August; the last rally was held in 2008.[3]
