The National Traction Engine Trust

Members will be aware that both Footman James and Walker Midgley are now part of Towergate Insurance. Towergate are combining the steam and low loader insurance to one office and with effect from 1st April the policies previously handled by Footman James are being transferred to Walker Midgley.

Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance are the underwriter concerned with both schemes but there are minor differences in the policy wordings and cover. The plan is for new combined wordings to be used going forwards and Walker Midgley’s Tony Wood has confirmed that discussions with Royal & Sun Alliance are taking place and it is hoped that the new policy will be available within the next week or so. Until the new policies are available renewal of Footman James policies will be issued by Walker Midgley on their existing Walker Midgley wordings.

Footman James policyholders should contact Walker Midgley with any policy enquiries, claims notifications or requests for NTET insurance discs. The specialist team at Walker Midgley can be contacted as follows:
