Traditions of farming go on show
BRITISH farming traditions and agricultural machinery heritage will be celebrated at this year’s East of England Show in Peterborough.
From vintage tractors, farm implements, steam engines, classic cars, lorries and fire engines will be on show at the display during the three day show starting on July 6.
It means visitors to the East of England Showground have the chance to look back in time at farming and agricultural methods using early machinery – including an impressive array of pre-1930 tractors.
James Coward, one of the Vintage Display organisers, said: “The vintage display is a true celebration of British farming traditions and our agricultural machinery heritage, drawing on exhibits from across the country.
“Enthusiasts come from afar to see the magnificent gathering of vehicles and machinery. Farmers love to reminisce with the tractors they used to drive, while families are inspired by the steam traction engines.”
One of the most popular areas is the agricultural machinery theme, overseen by the Peterborough Farm Machinery Preservation Society,
