As always a popular attraction at any Country Show, an Edwardian development of something aimed to offer or even replace the use of Steam on the Land, earliest examples date from the turn of the 19th/20th Century in one form or another. Introduced gradually between WW1 and WW2 but the main influx came during WW2 with the import of relatively cheap imports from the USA to supplement the use of the Horse and the ageing Steam Tractors – to Aid the War Effort.
Once again it is hoped to show at least 150 of these Beasts of the Land, many handsomely restored to their former glory and some remaining unrestored Rusty Relics but none the less loved and cherished by their owners. You may even see a few that still earn their keep trudging around the farm and small holdings.
Exhibits displayed cover the inter-war period onwards – 1930’s to 1970’s and include examples from the following manufacturers.
