Tractor & Engine Day 2010

Today the museum hosted yet another highly popular Tractor and Engine Day. Many machines were on display, but what I found most interesting were the traps; man traps, gin traps, badger traps. All now illegal to use, but a reminder of how things were done years ago before the advent of the electronic burglar alarm.
Featured in the tractor run in (pole position) was our Museum Manager Kevin Sims on his beloved Fordson Dexta, and on the tandem were 2 museum volunteers, Peter and Jim.

Results as follows: Best Engine- Richard Nesver showing a Lister stationary engine.
                     
Best Tractor- Alan and Pam Nesfield with an International Harvester
                            
Most Original Tractor - Chris Stevenson with a Field Marshall.
