Beadlam Tractor Run & Tour De Yorkshire 2016 Passes Ryedale Folk Museum ...

Tour De Yorkshire found at:

We were fortunate at Ryedale Folk Museum that both the Beadlam Tractor Run and the Tour De Yorkshire passed through Hutton-le-Hole. There was a decent crowd watching, Richard was in the best place at the Museum's Forge making a very good fireplace set on what was a very cold day. One lady collecting for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was donated some 10 Shilling notes in pristine condition, not something you see every day.

Last Friday day we had a test run of the roller grinder mill powered by the Lister stationary engine. We still have some minor things to fix on both, but overall it was successful.

Lister engine, ploughs and wattle fencing..

These ploughs have been renovated with new handles and a coat of paint. They are situated near the workshop.
 New wattle fences at the corner of the medieval house look much better

 Here Peter gets another Lister static engine running. Note the large drum for the water coolant.

After some spluttering, it runs!
