Tra­di­tions of farm­ing go on show

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

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,
